Learning Cities are being established across the world, based on the idea that by working and learning together we can achieve more and in turn this will transform lives, organisations and cities.
Bristol became England’s first UNESCO Learning City in 2016, a city where we work in partnership to create and promote learning opportunities for everyone, of all ages and from all communities, in all parts of the city. Bristol is also part of the PASCAL International Observatory Learning Cities Networks.
In September 2017, Bristol was presented with the UNESCO Learning City Award 2017 – one of 16 cities selected by an international panel of judges from over 50 applicants worldwide. The city was recognised for the good progress it had made in building a Learning City so far.
