The efficiency of managing lifelong learning is low. Access to knowledge is limited. The curriculum or knowledge has not been developed to be appropriate and up-to-date. Lack of development of the quality of education and development of labor skills diminishes knowledge and ability. The country's economic and social competitiveness is low.




Society is in chaos because people of all ages don’t study according to their own interests. And studying cannot be used to benefit work and life without development of the quality of education and labor skills. Knowledge and ability are deteriorating, bringing social problems.

This causes the development to be halted, deteriorated, or closed. There are only a small number of learning places in the city. Urban areas are not focused on designing to promote public learning.




The country's economy is in decline and recession because most workers lack the knowledge and important skills needed to live and work in uncertain and constantly changing situations. Most people have low incomes or lack income. Low-skilled workers are unemployed because jobs are being replaced by robots and automation.

But it is still not widespread in most educational institutions and organizations. Society places value on educational qualifications and doesn’t see the importance of lifelong learning outside the classroom.




People in society view learning as primarily a matter for children and teenagers. Working adults often do not strive to learn and develop their own skills further.

Educational institutions strive to adapt to the context of modern society. The development of learning spaces in the city despite the increasing number still hasn't truly reached every learner. Urban areas are increasingly focusing on design to promote public learning in many areas. But it's still not thorough.

Teachers and personnel development agencies in both the public and private sectors are responsible for guiding and facilitating learning. There are a variety of courses and resources available to study.

Thailand has a policy of "Learning for All" to create a good environment for learning by decentralizing educational institutions to act as co-organizers of appropriate curriculum for individual learners. There is a policy to promote and create incentives for working people to develop their own skills. Government organizations, the private sector, and civil society participate in organizing learning for people of all groups and ages.




Society places importance on integrating learning in every dimension, space, and time of life. The value of educational qualifications decreases. Students can therefore choose to study or practice their skills fully. The pressure and competition for learning is reduced. As a result, students will be happier in learning and working.



Learners feel happy and enjoy learning because they can learn fully according to their own aptitude and interests. and be able to apply the knowledge gained to work and live effectively. Thailand has developed a new learning system that promotes learning to discover and develop one's highest potential and lifelong learning. Advanced technology is used to help plan individualized learning. Urban areas are designed to promote learning and provide activity areas where learning and further work can be tailored to your interests and benefit society. The labor market is open to the emergence of new careers. People become job creators. Society is not judged by educational qualifications. There are a variety of learning media, courses, and learning formats to choose from. Learning can happen anywhere, anytime, for people of all ages, equally, without limitations.




Learning is something that learners of all ages can do anywhere, anytime, both online and in real places. There are many types of learning resources in the country. Everyone can be a learner and impart knowledge to others.




Advanced technology and educational innovations are applied to promote and manage learning and skill development for people of all ages throughout their lives. By analyzing individual interests, learners can help design lifelong learning for self-discovery and work skills. Advances in science and medicine have led to brain-enhancing technology that allows students to learn, remember, think, and apply knowledge further.




The learning space has been developed so that one can happily learn according to one's own interests whether inside or outside the classroom of an educational institution or office. The role of schools and universities is increasing in cooperation with enterprises, communities, and individual learners. Many urban areas are creative and safe activity areas. People of all groups and ages can do what they love and develop their full potential equally without limitations.




The country's economy is expanding. There are more forms of innovation and new forms of business. Because people can learn, develop themselves, and work on what they like, many innovations and social projects have been developed.




The government announces a National Learning Development Policy with media, curriculum, and learning resources developed with private companies, startups, and communities. Students have full access to information resources including areas at educational institutions, online, and in their communities.




People in society have a positive attitude towards learning. Everyone can learn anywhere, anytime, being both a learner and a knowledge sharer. Learning is fun for people of all ages and can be easily applied. Learning helps to discover oneself and find the meaning of life. People can use the skills and knowledge they have gained to benefit others in society.
