Programme : 

The 13th PASCAL International Conference - June 3rd to June 5th, 2016 in Glasgow, Scotland - will focus on future directions for Learning Cities at a time of considerable challenge and opportunity for cities, with significant development in the role and contribution of Learning Cities. Following soon after the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) 2nd International Conference on Learning Cities in Mexico City with the inauguration of the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities, the UN Paris conference on climate change, and UN decisions on sustainable development goals, the conference provides opportunities to share ideas and experience on the development and role of Learning Cities in this challenging context with opportunities for fresh ideas and innovative forms of partnership.

      The Conference builds on PASCAL work on Learning Cities since 2010 through two programs: PASCAL International Exchanges (PIE, 2010-2013) and PASCAL Learning Cities Networks (LCN, 2014- ). Important themes emerging from this work have been given shape in the themes of the conference. Glasgow as the venue of the conference has been awarded European Entrepreneurial Region for 2016 with a number of examples of entrepreneurial initiatives in Glasgow presented for the Conference that could be brought into a scenario for the future.

      The following speakers have been announced for this Conference:
