In practice there will be a numberof structured and sequenced actions to address each subtheme: > Each partner (city and region equals one partner)would seek to identify 3 participants (cross-sectoral) whowould form an Action Learning Group (ALG) for the specificsub-theme.> Each sub-theme will involve each ALG undertakingthe following steps:- Participation of members in a First Peer Review exchangewhich would focus on mapping of practice and identificationof need of all partners in relation to the sub-theme;- Participation in an online module which wouldexchange/identify good practice in relation to the sub-theme.This would incorporate external inputs as well as examplesfrom the partners. The module would be moderated withexpert support develop actions for inclusion operationalplans.- Participate in a Final Peer Review workshop that wouldfocus on the emerging action plans and present projectsidentified in module two as constituting good/better practice.The work of each ALG would be undertaken over 5-6 monthperiod thus enabling participants to develop goodrelationships that will enable ongoing working with eachother beyond the life of the group.Alongside the work of the ALG, the project will createthe online resource consisting of:> Case Studies> Sub-theme reports> Links to relevant websites> Publications/reports> Contacts with regional/city/national/European actorsThe outputs of phase I of this PFTN (financed throughURBACT I) are a baseline study, the work programme forphase II and a framework for local action plan.
