The first day of the meeting was dedicated to presentation of Swedish educational system by Mr Ali Rashidi, the director of Department for International Cooperation at Folkuniversitetet, Uppsala. The presentation covered historical background, introduction of Uppsala Folkuniversitetet, as well as detailed description of education in Sweden. The second day started with demonstration of YH Mälardalen project results, made by Ms Carina Lundström. After that the partnership discussed all administrative issues along with planning further activities of the project. “We were extremely glad to welcome the Learning City partners here in Uppsala Folkuniversitetet. We hope the experience that we shared will help the partnership on its way”, - says Ali Rashidi, the director of Department for International Cooperation of Folkuniversitetet. The Learning City is a movement that promotes collaboration of the civic, private, voluntary and education sectors at the level of a village, town, or city, enabling every person to participate and contribute to the development of their community. The project will allow partner organisations to increase their knowledge in the field, by benchmarking national/regional/local policies and exchanging examples and good practices collected at national/regional/local level. ### Contact: Ali Rashidi Phone: +46 18 68 00 60, email:
