Learning Cities 2020 - PASCAL will pursue four strands of activity

Following the success of the Cities Learning Together conference, PASCAL with partners aims to develop four strands of activity in the future, under the overall banner of Learning Cities 2020. These include developing networks, supporting learning city start-ups, undertaking research and hosting events.

Closing thoughts...

Dear Colleagues,

Cities Learning Together showed that partners can collaborate productively around shared purposes. The outcome can be shared ownership and commitment to further bilateral and multilateral action. This comes from learning together in an open participatory way, where different parties contribute relevant authority and expertise from different kinds of experience.
The aspirations quoted in the planning material and publicity were obviously not literally attainable in any one meeting. The way forward which we explored together however clearly involves integrated effort and partnership within and between sectors, organisations and ‘stakeholders’, based on ethics, respect and shared purpose. The Conference Precedings, experience and discussions showed through many examples how self-development can be supported, and important concepts like the learning city translated into good practice. It remains a central challenge for local residents in the different circumstances of big cities world-wide to best develop the necessary networks and support systems to be supported, to grow and to prosper in what were called EcCoWell cities.
