PASCAL 2016 Conference Abstract & Showcase deadline extended to Feb 22

We have had an excellent response to the call for abstracts and city showcases for the 13th PASCAL Conference in Glasgow from 3-5 June 2016, but a number of individuals and organisations have requested a slight extension in order to prepare their submissions. Therefore there are new deadlines for both the submissions of abstracts and city showcases of 22nd February.

Agenda 2030 – From the past towards the future we want

Global policies on education and lifelong learning influence regional, national and local policies. Historically the de-colonization period was a new beginning, but often led with a bad ending.  A very important milestone in developing a global education agenda was the World Education Forum in 2000 in Dakar, and the then agreed Framework for Action on Education for All.

PASCAL 2016 in Glasgow, 3-5 June 2016, Strand 1 Inclusion: providing lifelong learning opportunities for all

Inclusion has been central to the concept of a learning city from the beginning. While useful work has been undertaken in addressing exclusion in both the PASCAL International Exchanges (PIE) and Learning Cities Networks (LCN) programs, global contextual shifts and issues with mass migration flows, instability and high unemployment in many countries, and structural industry changes have raised a new generation of exclusion issues to add to the traditional issues in various stages of the lifecourse. PASCAL will be addressing these issues at their 13th International Conference in Glasgow, 3-5 June, 2016.

CR&DALL Themes: 

NEW ESREA BOOK. Researching and Transforming Adult Learning and Communities The Local/Global Context

FREELY AVAILABLE AS AN OPEN ACCESS BOOK! Featured below and also available through Sense Publishers.

Can adult education and learning be understood without reference to community and people’s daily lives? The response to be found in the chapters of this volume say emphatically no, they cannot. Adult learning can be best understood if we look at the social life of people in communities, and this book is an attempt to recover this view.

International Committee for the Collections and Activities of Museums of Cities - Migration Workshop

We are living in cities which are becoming more culturally and linguistically diverse through migration. In 2015 CAMOC, in its special 10th year anniversary, decided to focus on migration and its representation in city museums, first by dedicating its annual conference on the theme and now by partnering with the Open Museum, Glasgow to organise a special interactive workshop on 26/27 November 2015.
