Chişinău, together with 54 cities from 27 countries, has become part of the UNESCO Global Network Learning Cities. Representatives of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization said that the selected cities are remarkable examples in which lifelong learning can become a reality at the local level.
The UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities promotes political dialogue, peer learning, and collaboration between member cities. Thus, Chişinău will have access to global projects aimed at lifelong learning.
The UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities (GNLC) is an international policy-oriented network that provides inspiration, knowledge, and good practice. UNESCO GNLC members benefit from producing and sharing knowledge on key challenges and solutions, capacity-building and training initiatives, and participation in global events, such as the International Conference of Learning Cities.
Based on the UNESCO GNLC strategy for 2019-2021, more than 170 members of the network focus their joint activities on seven key groups: education for sustainable development; equity and inclusion; educational planning, monitoring and evaluation; education for global citizenship; entrepreneurship; health and well-being; and literacy.
