These learning cities’ documents consist of the Beijing Declaration on Building Learning Cities and the Key Features of Learning Cities, which were adopted at the 1st International Conference on Learning Cities in 2013. The Beijing Declaration, outlines the role of lifelong learning in promoting inclusion, prosperity and sustainability in cities and makes a commitment to twelve actions for developing learning cities. The Key Features of Learning Cities provides an overall framework of key features of learning cities and a comprehensive checklist of action points to enhance and measure the progress of learning cities.
