The International Conference on Learning Cities (ICLC) provides an opportunity for mayors, city education executives and experts from all over the world to communicate their expertise in building learning cities, learn from others’ experiences, forge partnerships and create synergies. The 1st conference, which was held in Beijing in 2013, culminated in the adoption of the Beijing Declaration on Building Learning Cities and the Key Features of Learning Cities.

The 2nd ICLC will mark a milestone in ‘Building Sustainable Learning Cities’ and make a significant contribution to the achievement of UNESCO’s post-2015 education agenda.
Through a dynamic agenda of plenary sessions, parallel regional forums and a mayors’ forum, participants will expand their understanding of how to develop sustainable learning cities, strengthen partnerships and networks, and implement the Key Features of Learning Cities. The Conference will provide a platform for mayors, city education executives and experts from various sectors and international organizations to share their expertise, learn from others’ experiences, forge partnerships and create synergies.
