XVIth PASCAL Conference, 16th – 19th October, 2019 “Learning for Resilience: People, Place and Partnership in Urban and Rural Communities”
CALL FOR PAPERS


The 2019 conference will have a focus on adult/lifelong learning place-making and cohesion. This three-day international conference will bring together scholars and practitioners who develop learning opportunities in community settings. The communities that epitomise the contemporary world are diverse, ranging spatially from inner cities to remote rural areas and encapsulating the complex web of identities that are part of life today. And learning by people at all ages is at the core of problem-solving in the face of 21st century problems. The themes of resilience and lifelong learning will cover some of the key challenges to be explored among experts and with stakeholders and community people in Cork UNESCO Learning City and at the Skellig Centre for Research and Innovation in Skellig Coast area of the Iveragh peninsula in county Kerry

To help us focus on some key challenges we offer the following working themes for the conference:

Learning Cities
· Learning, multi-culturalism and old and new identities: people and place in urban areas
· Learning for cross-sectoral resilience capacity building in cities
· Knowledge sharing and education enabling collaborative dialogues
· Learning resilience in a complex society

· Learning from each other: rural lessons for city living
