Trends in Learning Region/City development

With the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities now accelerating into implementation after successful launches of the Beijing Declaration last October, the learning city scene is becoming more diverse and interesting. Several City networks have published their own set of indicators, many of them complementary to the GNLC's own 'key features' and PASCAL has branched out from PIE (Pascal International Exchanges) to launch 5 new learning city sites concentrating on specific aspects of learning city development.

Xploit, another KA4 project with synergies to EUROlocal

'EUROlocal is in close contact with a sister KA4 project named Xploit. Norman Longworth has attended, and contributed to, the first project meeting in Salt, Spain and as a result, has been asked to keep contact by attending the second meeting in Swansea in October.

Like Eurolocal, The XPLOIT Project is a European Project on Training and Lifelong Learning activities promoted by the European Commission within the "LLL - Lifelong Learning Program".

Community engagement

As a teacher of community development theory and practice I am eager to find ways of bringing 'grassroots' activists and community development practitioners into the structures, processes and practices for building vibrant learning regions and cities.

PIE and EUROlocal

PIE is now a vibrant discussion site with comments from a variety of people around the world. Now we need to make EUROlocal equally vibrant.

Launch of PASCAL International Exchanges

PASCAL International Exchanges (PIE) is a new project, co-ordinated at our Melbourne Regional Office which aims to broker and support exchange, on a bilateral or multilateral basis, between local and community agencies and organisations in different parts of the world.

Blog items are discussion topics

Blog items differ from News items in that they are discussion topics without a specific timeframe. Initially, the Blog section will be used for project issues, but over time it will be developed into active areas for discussion of more general learning region topics.
