In February this year, Adult Learning Australia, in partnership with RMIT and the Australian Learning Cities Network 26, organised a Smart Learning Cities Forum.

The forum examined Smart City developments and linkages with Learning City approaches.

UNESCO defines a learning city as a city that:

  • effectively mobilizes its resources in every sector to promote inclusive learning from basic to higher education
  • revitalizes learning in families and communities
  • facilitates learning for and in the workplace
  • extends the use of modern learning technologies
  • enhances quality and excellence in learning
  • fosters a culture of learning throughout life.
