Please submit your Biennial Progress Report to the Coordination Team of the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities (GNLC) according to the submission deadlines stated in the membership regulations. This report should reflect your city’s progress in learning city development from April 2019 until September 2021, regardless of whether this development is in its initial stages or has already been firmly established in your learning city.
Submission deadline is 31 December 2021.
This deadline applies to all GNLC member cities except those who joined last year (September 2020). These cities will be asked to submit their report next year.
The collection of submitted reports serves to support the monitoring of the concrete achievements of member cities by underlining effective polices, strategies, measures and partnerships towards promoting lifelong learning for all in their communities.
Each Progress Report will be evaluated in terms of achievements as well as efforts made to implement sustainable lifelong learning initiatives. Your report can include supporting materials such as illustrations, case studies or videos. To the best extent possible, please provide concrete statistics to support your city’s achievements.
Please note that your report should be concise and informative, focusing on key points and actions that can showcase learning city initiatives.
Answers should not exceed the word limits indicated in the questions. Please answer as many questions as possible and check the answers before submitting them.
The UNESCO GNLC Coordination Team will review member cities’ Progress Reports based on the network’s guiding documents and regulations. If a member city
- submits an incomplete Progress Report; or
- does not demonstrate progress in building a learning city; or
- does not submit its biennial Progress Report,
this city’s membership will not be renewed. Cities whose membership is not renewed can apply to re-join the network as per the application periods announced on UIL website. Please note that cities whose membership is not renewed will be notified of the fact by UNESCO GNLC.
