Big Foot Conferenece. June 5. Regions and Localities of Social Learning in Rural Areas, Lukas Löschner,

  1. 1. 1Big Foot Final Conference│ Intergenerational Learning and Innovation for Sustainable Development │ Vienna International Centre (VIC)│ June, 2013 12. Treffen der Steuerungsgruppe „Ländliche Räume in der Wissensgesellschaft“ │ WKNÖ │ Krems a.d. Donau │ 18. April 2012 Regions and Localities of Learning – Toward a Governance of Learning in Rural Areas Lukas Löschner Institute for Spatial Planning and Rural Development (IRUB) University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) Final Conference of the Project „Big Foot: Crossing Generations, Crossing Mountains“ Vienna International Centre (VIC) │ June 5, 2013
  2. 2. 2Big Foot Final Conference│ Intergenerational Learning and Innovation for Sustainable Development │ Vienna International Centre (VIC)│ June, 2013 Overview  Dimensions of Learning: where and how can learning take place?  Rural Learning Environments: what are their respective qualities and deficits for learning?  Intergenerational Learning: how may it become an integral part of learning environments?  Governance of Learning: what does it mean and how can it take a more concrete form?
  3. 3. 3Big Foot Final Conference│ Intergenerational Learning and Innovation for Sustainable Development │ Vienna International Centre (VIC)│ June, 2013 FOUR DIMENSIONS OF LEARNING LEARNING TO KNOW LEARNING TO DO LEARNING TO BE LEARNING TO LIVE TOGETHER UNESCO, 1996
  4. 4. 4Big Foot Final Conference│ Intergenerational Learning and Innovation for Sustainable Development │ Vienna International Centre (VIC)│ June, 2013 STRENGTHS solid knowledge base (e.g. below average share of low- qualified persons, above average share of apprentices) WEAKNESSES ▬ regional discrepancies between supply and demand in qualifications THREATS ▼ qualification as push-factor for out-migration of young adults OPPORTUNITIES ▲ continuous trend to higher education LEARNING TO KNOW
  5. 5. 5Big Foot Final Conference│ Intergenerational Learning and Innovation for Sustainable Development │ Vienna International Centre (VIC)│ June, 2013 STRENGTHS system of dual learning in apprenceships (i.e. in trade school and in the training enterprise) WEAKNESSES apprentices have fewer possibilities for interregional and international mobility THREATS shortage of apprentices in certain fields (due to low quality of applicants and high concentration on few trades) OPPORTUNITIES growing political attention on the dual system of learning (EU and national level) LEARNING TO DO
  6. 6. 6Big Foot Final Conference│ Intergenerational Learning and Innovation for Sustainable Development │ Vienna International Centre (VIC)│ June, 2013 STRENGTHS awareness for human- environment interactions (e.g. as a basis for knowledge based actions) WEAKNESSES lower diversity and fewer cultural offers than in urban areas THREATS higher reluctance to embrace (technological) innovations, in particular among elderly populations (i.e. digital illiteracy) OPPORTUNITIES better provision of ICTs opens new ways for learning via new media LEARNING TO BE
  7. 7. 7Big Foot Final Conference│ Intergenerational Learning and Innovation for Sustainable Development │ Vienna International Centre (VIC)│ June, 2013 STRENGTHS community engagement and bottom-up initiatives (foster the emotional ties to other forms of learning) WEAKNESSES greater social control in rural communities and a lack of creative milieus THREATS structural shifts in rural economies and demographic change (i.e. out migration and ageing population) pose a challenge to social cohesion OPPORTUNITIES a growing range of regional and local development frameworks (to mobilize community engagement) LEARNING TO LIVE TOGETHER
  8. 8. 8Big Foot Final Conference│ Intergenerational Learning and Innovation for Sustainable Development │ Vienna International Centre (VIC)│ June, 2013 LEARNING TO KNOW pupils can learn from elderly generations about economic, social, environmental changes to the region („contemporary witnessess“) LEARNING TO DO apprenticeships: the skills for a trade are passed on from older to younger generations LEARNING TO LIVE TOGETHER regional/local development frameworks provide a good forum to foster dialog across and mutual understanding between age groups LEARNING TO BE elderly generations can learn from younger generations how to navigate the world wide web and make use use of modern technologies INTERGENERATIONAL LEARNING
  9. 9. 9Big Foot Final Conference│ Intergenerational Learning and Innovation for Sustainable Development │ Vienna International Centre (VIC)│ June, 2013 Toward a Governance of Learning in Rural Areas (I) In the making...  growing (political) importance of multi-dimensional learning:  recent shift towards learning-oriented regional development:  recent initiatives for fostering learning on the municipal level:
  10. 10. 10Big Foot Final Conference│ Intergenerational Learning and Innovation for Sustainable Development │ Vienna International Centre (VIC)│ June, 2013 Toward a Governance of Learning in Rural Areas (II) ...more Coherence  reliable statistical data and hard facts on rural learning environments  better coordination of (piecemeal) initiatives , bridging all learning dimensions  solid strategic foundation for learning-oriented local/regional development projects (an the basis of SWOT-analyses) Strengths Weaknesses Threats Opportunities
