Learning & Innovation

Nobody really knows what learning is. We all know that we do learn things. This is true for individuals, and it is true for organizations and communities. How these levels and modes of learning relate, is a fertile ground for debate and investigation. We tend to think that governance is a place where many forms of knowledge and many modes of learning can find a place, and where their linking and synthesis needs to be encouraged.
