New UBC Commission established

Upon the initiative of the Task Force on Youth Employment and Well-being, with a support of Liepaja (Latvia), Naestved (Denmark), Riga (Latvia), Rostock (Germany), Turku (Finland) and Århus (Denmark), the UBC Executive Board decided to establish a temporary Commission on Education. This decision will be confirmed by the UBC General Assembly. The new Commission will be named Learning Cities Commission.
The new Commission will carry out the work plan of the Task Force on Youth Employment and Well-being. It will strengthen the UBC cooperation in the field of education, and also deepen the cooperation with the European Union Baltic Sea Region Strategy (EUSBSR) Policy Area Education (PA EDU). New projects, workshops and conferences are planned.
Please inform Matti Mäkela,, if there will be any changes of contact persons representing your cities in the new Commission.
