Bristol Learning City

Learning Cities are being established across the world. They are based on the idea that by working and learning together we can achieve more and in turn this will transform lives, organisations and cities.

Love-Learning-stamp-COLOURBristol has become England’s first UNESCO Learning City. Organisations have committed to work in partnership to create and promote learning opportunities for everyone, of all ages and from all communities, in all parts of the city.

2016 is the Year of Learning in Bristol. We want everyone to know that Bristol is a Learning City, to get involved, learn new things and help spread the word. Our campaign tagline is ‘Love Learning’.

The development of Bristol Learning City is overseen by a group of influential city leaders, who belong to the Partnership Board, and represent education, business and advocates for learning.

Four ‘challenge groups’ have been set up, to look at and improve specific areas of learning in the city and consider ways of including all ages and backgrounds in learning.  The four ‘challenge groups’ are: learning in education, learning for and in work, learning for life and learning for everyone.
