The UNESCO Institute for lifelong learning, based in Hamburg is a repository of knowledge, skills and actions in teh sphere of Lifelong Learning. More recently it has turned its attention to Learning Cities. Its International Platform for Learning Cities intends to establish a global network of cities whose stakeholders in schools, universities, businesses, cultural services, adult education etc can link with each other in bilateral or multilateral projects to exchange ideas, knowledge, good practice and sometimes people. The Platform has created a list of Key Features, indicators to help cities to measure and monitor their progress and to develop strategies in the key areas of economic development, social inclusion, sustainability and lifelong learning. PASCAL members have been closely involved in these developments and the organisation has the knowledge and capability to play a role in the implementation and maintenance of the network.
