Organised by The EU Centre at RMIT and hosted by The Hong Kong Institute of Education, the 11th PASCAL International Observatory Conference will take place in Hong Kong, 18-20 November 2013 with fieldwork to test approaches in different Hong Kong settings on 19 November.
Cities Learning Together - Local Communities in the Sustainable and Healthy Learning City
- Can integrated effort and partnership within and between sectors, organisations and urban centres lead to a viable and sustainable future for the urban majority who now inhabit the planet?
- How can city administrations, voluntary bodies, business and universities work together to overcome the multiple crises facing us and develop healthy cities that can survive and self-improve?
- Does city learning really matter? How do cities really learn? How can we create learning spaces and processes that encourage people to learn and plan consciously as groups linking up with other learner-actors across all sectors and institutions in the city? How and where does devolution really work? How can local responsibility and wisdom be engaged to meet global and national ecological and economic priorities? How is high-level intent translated into practical action?
- What is the role of local communities and neighbourhoods in addressing the big issues confronting cities?
