The book was written for change leaders working in the local economic development sphere with local and global challenges and acknowledging that: lifelong learning underpins all of the Sustainable Development Goals; happiness and well-being should be objectives of development; the enhancement of cultural relations between cities is a path to a sustainable world and that universities, business organisations, and other stakeholders should partner to achieve new ways of learning, working collectively to create green, healthy learning cities, enhancing inclusion and equity, that will provide decent work. 

Viewers will be motivated to take action and become part of a change movement to implement lifelong learning projects that will improve the quality of lives of communities.
