PIMA Bulletin18

Written by Chris Duke on Jun 29, 2018 03:16 pm

This attached PIMA Bulletin 18 sustains the theme ‘What is happening to democracy’ by means of a challenging paper from South Africa’s Mugabe Ratshikuni who asks, only slightly tongue in cheek, whether we really need it. We return to that subject in the next issue, and invite responses to both Mugabe and Chris Brooks. We will likely also return to the subject ‘What has happened to lifelong learning’ in the next issue, after a five-part discussion in previous issue (No. 17). Comments are welcome there also.

Written by Annalisa Raymer on Jun 04, 2018 04:53 pm

Being at the UNESCO 3rdInternational Conference on Global Cities was a watershed experience.  I was simultaneously inspired by the robust, actionable hope manifested there, and utterly dismayed to learn there were no member cities from my own county, the USA.   At the conference I met Peter Kearns and Denise Reghenzani-Kearns, who told me about PASCAL, and I met local leaders of Cork City responsible for putting together such a magnificent conference.
