Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of adult and lifelong education through the lens of the learning city, considering the history of this concept’s formation and the ways in which it is defined and evaluated, in particular in the global south. The chapter provides a number of examples as to what a learning city looks like in practice and includes a discussion regarding the ways in which learning cities have been actualized across the globe. The chapter concludes by emphasizing the value of creating networks and sharing initiatives, taking into account that this should recognize that learning city initiatives often have a local and place-specific context.
