International Day of the Educating City
Over 180 cities from 10 countries join the celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Educating Cities and 2020 International Day!
On 30 November we celebrate the 30 years of the Charter and the International Day of the Educating City, with the slogan “30 years transforming people and cities for a better world”. Over 180 cities join the 2020 International Day, despite the difficult health situation in many places. We are very grateful for your work and creativity!
With the input received from member cities, each day of November we have published in our website and in social media one of the legacies of Educating Cities in this 30 years working for a better world. On 30 November, we post a summary video of the 30 lessons learned (please see above)
Conferences and debates, exhibits, radio programmes, sharing the 30 legacies in social media and in public areas, photo contests, traning events, urban art, tributes to educating agents, play activities, approval of the Charter by the municipal plenary, reading of a declaration by the Mayor, production of videos… the list of activities organised by member cities is endless!

At the time of such an important anniversary, we have updated the Charter of Educating cities. The new version reinforces issues such as gender or sustainability, it includes a specific principle dedicated to health and care, and gives more weight to culture. It also incorporates new topics such as the digital divide or big data. You can read it here. The new Charter was presented on 26 November:
This edition deserved a new corporate identity and we have updated the event poster and the educating cities’ logo, keeping its essence.
Please send us pictures and videos of the celebration in your city and we will share it with the network! email@example.com
