UNESCO Learning Cities: Supporting Lifelong Learning

Mar 6, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

According to UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay, "With more than half of humanity living in urban areas, cities have the power to drive lifelong learning policies by implementing and supporting local initiatives and bring bottom-up change.” Join representatives from UNESCO, Cork, Ireland and other community learning leaders for a discussion about the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities. The big ideas and goals being pursued through the initiative will be explored, as well as the benefits for cities that join the network and the process for obtaining designation as a Learning City.
