This project has been commissioned as part of 2009 European Year of Creativity and Innovation.Despite being located in Australia, they had come across my "extensive work on learning and innovation" (their words), and thought that I might be able to help them identify practices that I may have come across in the EU.
- Stimulating innovative/creative behaviour in people, and
- Promoting an innovative/creative approach to tackle problems in society.
I think they would probably be aware of the work of the places I visited on my Churchill Fellowship but I put forward some recommendations.
What captured my imagination though was the focus on creativity and innovation. It sounds much more promising than the Australian Government's Education Revloution.
