The new English-language Learning City Espoo brochure tells about Espoo as a learning city, presents actors which participate in building it and introduces innovations and best practices. The brochure also describes what a learning city is and Espoo’s journey into becoming such a city.
United Nation’s Educational, Scientific and Cultural organization UNESCO rewarded the City of Espoo as a pioneer and enabler of lifelong learning in September 2015. A learning city recognizes the significance of learning as a foundation of wellbeing of the city and all its residents. A learning city is built on innovations which are created and implemented in co-operation with different partners. That is why the aim is promoted together with citizens, educational organizations, enterprises, associations and communities.
The Finnish- and Swedish-language versions of the brochure will be published soon.
