Learning City

The European Commission uses the umbrella term 'Learning Region' to cover towns and cities as well as regions. The two ELLI/EC Definitions are repeated here for convenience

‘A Learning city, town or region goes beyond its statutory duty to provide education and training for those who require it and instead creates a vibrant, participative, culturally aware and economically buoyant human environment through the provision, justification and active promotion of learning opportunities to enhance the potential of all its citizens.’

Learning Needs Audit (LILARA)

(As in the LILARA Project) A tool to enable people within an organisation or Local Authority to understand the various aspects of a learning city or region by responding to questions or exercises. In so doing they assess their own needs for learning and their opportunities for contribution.

Learning Region

The term “learning region” is used in a broad generic sense referring to a region, city, urban or rural area, regardless of whether its identity is defined in administrative, cultural, geographical, physical or political terms. The learning region must, however, have sufficient size to encompass and mobilise the key players for the purpose of developing lifelong learning1.

Learning Region (ELLI/EC)

Two definitions of a Learning Region originating in the European Lifelong Learniung Initiative (ELLI) and adopted by the European Commission(EC) for its R3L (Regions of Lifelong Learning)Programme

‘A Learning city, town or region goes beyond its statutory duty to provide education and training for those who require it and instead creates a vibrant, participative, culturally aware and economically buoyant human environment through the provision, justification and active promotion of learning opportunities to enhance the potential of all its citizens.’

Stakeholder

Any organisation or person that can contribute to, and/or benefit from, the creation of a learning city or region in the locality. In theory this means most organisations and most people.

Stakeholder Audit

A Stakeholder Audit is a tool that enables stakeholders to learn about learning region matters and how they can enhance the performance of stakeholder organisations in the city or region through their responses to a set of questions or exercises. The phrase was coined for the European Commissions's INDICATORS project. It sets up a dialogue between the creator of the audit and the respondee by soliciting opinions, and engaging the respondee in the process of learning. It has several uses
- to raise awareness of learning cities and regions in organisations and people.
