Brave New Learning - Learning apart together
Brave New Learning – Learning apart together
In a world where technology, social relations, work and daily life have become interwoven, how can we design our future? How can we learn for the future as individuals, but also communities and the city?
What is the role of public institutions and traditional community builders such as libraries in the learning ecosystems of our future cities? As OBA celebrates its 100th anniversary, it is the perfect timing to shine a new light on these questions.
During Brave New Learning we will showcase some exciting initiatives. While also launching a wider European debate on how public institutions and local communities can inspire citizens to continue learning.
We will be launching the framework for learning friendly cities as places for the positive and sustainable growth: for all citizens and society as a whole.

Main Themes of the Event
21st century skills for everybody
As our socities become ever more digital we see the gap between the digital-savvy and the digital illiterates widen every day. How do we make sure everyone can keep up with the pace and nobody is left behind?
Learning by making
learning by making empowers people to shape their worlds and unleash creativity. How do we design adaptive, open and safe spaces where such learning experiences can happen? Spaces that allow for imagination, discovery and creativity; for what is familiar and what opens our eyes.
Our society needs both physical and virtual communities where formal and informal learning is taking place. Third places - and Public Libraries in particular - have a great tradition as trusted environments and community hubs in the city. How will the role of third places evolve in our kaleidoscopic diverse cities? And how do we create the favorable conditions for inclusive community learning in our ever more digital world?
The boundaries between personal technologies and the physical environment are blurring. Physical spaces are impregnated with new layers of information and content. AI technologies like natural language processing or image recognition allow for intuitive interactions with the world. How can we leverage these technologies to augment personal learning experiences for everyone in a meaningful way?
