About this webinar series

The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated that cities’ resilience is key to tackling crisis situations. Learning cities such as those engaged in the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities need to be able to cushion shocks and persistent structural changes in such a way that learning continues, the well-being of citizens is preserved and no one is left behind. But how are resilient learning cities built?

Taking stock of the previous and ongoing webinar series UNESCO Learning Cities’ response to COVID-19, this new webinar cycle will address this question by highlighting challenging aspects of learning city development, drawing on recent research and development. Starting on 17 June 2020, five webinars will focus on topics such as inclusion, learning outcomes measurement, planning and evaluation, technical and vocational education and training (TVET), education for sustainable development and learning for health and well-being.

The webinar series will demonstrate the practical application of successful approaches in learning cities to address the above issues by offering a conceptual and analytical dialogue. In so doing, the intention is to build learning cities’ capacity to take forward their own responses and approaches to the challenges they face.

This new webinar series will be jointly organized by the PASCAL International Observatory and the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning. The series addresses city representatives, university networks, academia, practitioners and further interested stakeholders.

All details on this and subsequent webinars are found on the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning website.
