Learning City

What is a learning city?

A learning city promotes lifelong learning for all.
UNESCO defines a learning city as a city that:

→  Effectively mobilises its resources in every sector
to promote inclusive learning from basic to higher education
→  Revitalises learning in families and communities
→  Facilitates learning for and in the workplace
→  Extends the use of modern learning technologies
→  Enhances quality and excellence in learning
→  Fosters a culture of learning throughout life.

In doing so, the city enhances individual empowerment and social inclusion, economic development and cultural prosperity, and sustainable development.
