The Global Learning Village is a think-and-do tank. It challenges the silo mentality, turf wars, institutional ego and bureaucratic inertia that strangle coordination and innovation. It will report on the best ideas from around the world seeking the wisdom of crowds, governments, business, the community, philanthropic sector, the academy, mavericks, iconoclasts and free thinkers.
GLV is an initiative for international leadership in economic and social development. Frank McGuire’s pioneering work on the model has been nominated for the Metropolis Awards for 2011 and has been presented to 130 international cities. The strategy behind the Global Learning Village is to co-ordinate partnerships between the three tiers of Government; business big and small the community and philanthropic sectors to deliver smarter, healthier, better connected communities.
The Global Learning is designed to provide the social infrastructure necessary for 21st Century communities. It can be established in school, libraries, childcare centres, sporting facilities or other communities hubs.
Proven ideas for lifelong learning and innovation will be reported via the web using the latest technology to provide an international exchange of ideas and interaction.
