It is the recognition of exemplary progress made by the city in promoting inclusive education and lifelong learning in local communities. A good example of the initiatives, as part of its learning city development, is the establishment of an annual lifelong learning festival in 2011, which has grown from 70 to 250 free events and enables people to experience the city's learning opportunities.
The award will be conferred on the cities during the third International Conference on Learning Cities in Cork, Ireland, which will take place from 18 to 20 September 2017.
