LMC in Helsingborg 5th October 2009

Welcome to Helsingborg by Yrkeshogskolan Advanced Vocational Education School. After strong coffee and formal introduction to the group and new members the partners we given welcome packs and information about the local area and history of the Oresund region. Interestingly Oresund is an 'Transnational Region' with a Danish counterpart but who work together in many respects. Not sure if there are many other transnational regions of this type elsewhere in the EU... Following a clarification of the Swedish Educational System and how lifelong learning is followed in Sweden we had lunch...
The Mayor of Helsinborg works from the City Hall which made for an interesting visit and she set the scene of the local politics and how the history of Helsingborg is represented in the City Halls varied artworks. This was furthered by a visit to the Culture House which is a legacy of Henry Dunkers local business in 'rubber boots' apparently!!! Pics to Follow :-)
