OECD Local Skills Week 2024: Talent for the twin transitions

Session 8: UNESCO Learning Cities as drivers of lifelong learning

Jun 27, 2024 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM


Lifelong learning rates remain low in many OECD countries. In 2022, only 12% of adults participated in non-formal education and training in the OECD. These rates are far below objectives. Due to their policy responsibility in areas such as primary and secondary education, city governments have a unique role to play in instilling a culture of lifelong learning. UNESCO’s Global Network of Learning Cities champions an all-of-government approach to this challenge. This session will bring together cities to share initiatives taken to encourage citizens to pursue education and training throughout life. Esta sesión tendrá interpretación en español. Cette session bénéficiera d’une interprétation en français.
