“City or Region of Learning is a new approach of connecting learning opportunities across territories and making them more visible and accessible to young people. Cities and Regions of Learning use web infrastructure to map learning opportunities, offer local and digital experiences, use digital Open Badges to value and recognise learning and achievements. It also offers many possibilities for supporting youth employment.”
