Edmonton is a City of Learners, a city where people of all ages embrace learning as a fundamental component of their personal, social and work lives.
The Learning City Initiative aims to stimulate the creation of conditions in which Edmontonians at all stages of life can access meaningful opportunities to: learn to know, learn to live together, learn to do, and learn to be.
Many opportunities for collaboration among the partners in the Learning City Initiative will be explored, while respecting the mandates and the autonomy of all involved. Working together we can achieve measurable improvement in learning outcomes.
As a City of Learners, we celebrate the excellence our community has already achieved in learning, and we set our sights on even greater success for individuals, institutions, industry and our city as a whole. The challenges of a complex and competitive world demand nothing less than conceiving of learning as an organizing principle in our community.
