This publication aims to make readers aware of the importance of citizenship education (CE) in local communities within the framework of lifelong learning. It supports cities and citizens in advancing their work on this critical aspect of formal and non-formal education, and in striving for progress in the provision of CE for youth and adult learners. It is mainly based on information from the 2020 survey of cluster members, as well as on case studies and inputs from the conference, ‘Strengthening citizenship education at local level’, which was held virtually on 12 and 13 November 2020.
