THE WORK OF IMAGINATION : LIFEWIDE EDUCATION'S CALL FOR ACTION
We believe that imagination is essential for human flourishing at any level and in any context. We also believe that not enough attention is given to the explicit encouragement and development of learners' imaginations in higher education.
In the August 2020 Issue of Lifewide Magazine we are exploring the role and value of imagination in learning, education, work and any other aspects of life. We invite anyone who is interested in joining our exploration to contribute a short (up to 1500 words) illustrated article on any of the themes below. We would need your article no later than July 14th 2020.
If you are interested in submitting an article please send me a short summary of what you would like to write about Professor Norman Jackson firstname.lastname@example.org
1. A day in the life of my imagination
2. My life and my imagination
3. Imagination and transforming something at work
4. Encouraging others to use their imagination
5. Combining and integating imaginations

LEARNING CITIES & CITIES FOR LEARNING
A culture in which lifewide education and learning flourish is most likely to develop in ecosocial systems that harness and mobilise the resources and social capital of a whole region or city in support of the diverse learning needs, interests and ambitions of the individuals, families and communities that live, work, study and play within the space and contexts it provides. The idea of learning cities & cities for learning is gathering momentum and substance in many parts of the world and Lifewide Education needs to engage in the debate and actively engage in their practical development.
