PASCAL International Observatory Site Digest

 

We are all preoccupied with friends and family, activities planned long ago are suspended, projects that once looked important are now put to one side because there are new questions to ask and to try to answer. This is where PASCAL comes in - and hopefully, into your home office or make-do library. 

I hope that you will make the same effort that I am making to write for the PASCAL site, to share thoughts, observations, and yes concerns.  I hope to have something for you to read on what we still need to learn from the crisis of 2008 about a recovery plan for cities. The climate change and health agendas are going to be hard to bring together. 

The crisis will keep us apart but the website will bring us together.  Read the PASCAL Digest and visit the PASCAL family of sites!

Rethinking Sustainable Learning Communities for Extraordinary Times | An EcCoWell 2 Community Recovery Program

Written by Peter Kearns on Apr 30, 2020 02:36 pm

Today PASCAL inaugurates a new programme directed at the recovery of communities from the coronavirus epidemic.  The term “community” has been used a lot in the media in reference to the social context in which people are at higher risk of getting infected.

Don't Waste A Crisis (Part Two) - Fondation pour l'Innovation Politique (FONDAPOL)

Written by Josef Konvitz on Apr 28, 2020 01:41 pm

Many are writing about what-comes-after, the post-pandemic era.  Josef Konvitz has completed a two-part essay, “Don’t Waste a Crisis”, for the French Fondation pour l’innovation politique, or FONDAPOL. This final version, which includes the first part on infrastructure and education,  focuses on cross-border risks and concludes with proposals for how Europe can reinforce its cohesion through the single market and at the same time, intervene more broadly in a globalised world.  If you think that globalisation is a bad thing, his essay suggests that regulation, European-style, uses globalisation to make the world safer.
