Urban Education Live (UEL) will create and test a new model of collaboration between universities and urban communities. In this model, universities act as catalysts of urban change through trans-educational urban capacity building. Both local communities and the learning process of students will benefit from this collaboration model.
Social Mapping will build a local agenda with a high sensitivity to situated knowledge. UEL establishes Local Hubs for learning and doing that create new networks and foster local innovative ecologies. The project will develop a flexible set of methods, technologies and theories that makes it possible to test and implement the model on a larger scale.
