When we think of education, we often think of children and young people as the primary receivers of education. However, lifelong learning is crucial to everyone as they age and can provide a way to increase social inclusion and stability among people at various ages. Education and learning must be contemplated as a lifelong process that we engage in throughout our lives. When mainstreaming age concerns into education research and policy, make sure to consider what different types of resources might be used by people of various age groups and how to be as inclusive as possible.
