Few questions are as important as this to policymakers, educators and civil society today. Citizens form the building blocks of productive and healthy societies, but polluted, overpopulated and underserviced urban centers are diminishing their capacities.

These are the questions experts seek to give insight on in this selection of articles on developing lifelong learning models for cities of the future.
