Answer
These subcategories include unpaid informal caregiving, volunteering; unpaid domestic work; unpaid subsistence activities, unpaid family work, and unpaid work in paid workplaces. Thus, learning mobility, poverty, and well-being among the informally employed are likely. Gorana Krstić and Peter Sanfey analyze informal-sector employment in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BH) using panel data from the Living Standards Measurement Studies. They derive four main conclusions. First, there is significant labor market mobility in B&H, with education being an important factor in explaining movements from informal- to formal-sector jobs. Secondly, informal jobs are much more likely to suffer from poverty than formally employed people. Thirdly, earnings inequality is more pronounced in the informal sector than elsewhere. Fourthly, the informally employed report lower life satisfaction levels than those in almost all other groups in the labor market. Overall, they conclude that, while the informal sector may represent a vital coping strategy for many, the formal sector provides much better prospects for prosperity and well-being.

"Sustainable development can be defined as progress that meets the needs of the present compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
Companies that fail to integrate social responsibility into the core of their business miss the opportunities to build organizations with high performance and resilient employees.
Human capital/culture is the fourth pillar of sustainable development since November 17, 2010 when a document is adopted calling on cities and local and regional governments around the world to (a) develop cultural policy and include the cultural dimension in all public policies b) the role of employees/human beings as creators and innovators.

We are starting the project CultSense - Sensitizing Young Travellers for Local Cultures (www.cultsense.com). The project seeks to find a new approach to increase understanding and valorization of local cultures by the people that visit these places. We are in first instance thinking of young people.
  • What is for you the most important challenge in making this bridge of understanding between (young) tourists and the local cultures they visit?
  • Any ideas of how to communicate ways to tackle this challenge?
Thank you for sharing your views and the challenges of the places you live and visit!
Relevant answer
Answer
Great project! Congratulation to the whole group!
I would approach such an issue starting from the actors that create foster and communicate tourism in the first place. What makes the (young) tourists decide where to go and what to do there? What strategies are in place that aims to attract tourists?
I think about the infamous Amsterdam case, we have now a generation of people who have been to the Netherlands so many times in their life without trespassing the Coffee Shop quarter.
Also, what is the role of the "new" media in tourists' decision making? My hunch is that Instagram and influencers in general play a paramount role in developing tastes and hence tourists' behaviours.
Another level of attention could be one of the local businesses. Do shops and entrepreneurs play a role in that? Jane Jacobs would say YES, and others such as Gehl architects say that retail plays a crucial role in the experience of a city/public space.
Let's talk more!
All the best,
Valeria

I am interested in whether popular writing on issues related to cultural governance and sustainable development in cities in the global south can further a research agenda. Will this enable researchers to document projects for later research or to help budding researchers and practitioners? How will this aid in further knowledge generation? what are the possible challenges of doing this? if you are interested in the area, not afraid to share preliminary interests, and wish to collaborate follow the link https://creativecitysouth.org/call-for-contributors/
Relevant answer
Answer
Great topic Zayd,
I believe that mechanisms that help to point out cultural governance and urban sustainable development issues are a great way to bring the discussion to the table. Specially in the Global South context... I thing that in can help to:
  • Develop a categorization - taxonomy of issues that are perhaps not so identified by academia or in academic terms;
  • Discover the local interpretations of such issues and perhaps new local terminology that might add to further academic studies.
  • Create networks and platforms of formal and informal issue documentation.
  • Identify key local informants and expertise for certain issues.
  • Democratizing the discussion and allowing inclusion for non academic actors.
At the same time digital tools have been only gaining relevance on the discussion.
I really like this collaborative research project that showcases issues (in other category) and taps on community knowledge :

BOOK PROJECT
I am working on my book project about the sustainability development in cultural management context and try to collect as much examples as possible. Especially I am looking for examples to show formal organizations/institutions/business where a social participation is one of a management method. So if it is possible:
Could you give me some interesting examples where: - budget - program / offer is/was created together with different stakeholders, and especially with the recipients/audience? I think about different organizations like cinema houses, permanent organizations, culture businesses, theaters etc.
Please give me detailed information that will allow me to contact the institution directly, or website address or English-language research/articles etc. on this subject.
I also collect examples of social participation in cultural policy making so this kind of examples are welcome but this first point is more important for me now.

In my book "Public Participation as a Tool for Integrating Local Knowledge into Spatial Planning" (Springer, 2017) I compare between the respective capabilities of different participatory practices - top-down as well as bottom-up - to capture residents' local knowledge (e.g., needs, perceptions, perspectives, opinions) and incorporate it into planning and plans. The comparison is conducted according to dozens parameters such as 'the motivators for participatory processes', 'procedures and tools employed in the participatory processes', 'the interaction between stakeholders', 'exposure of local knowledge', 'characteristics of local knowledge exposed', etc.
Relevant answer
Answer
Though there are several methods, depending on the sample size you are assessing, in my perspective face to face interviews/questionnaires are generally feasible to get relevant data, using both focus groups or relevant parts oat the planning level.

In my book, titled "Public Participation as a Tool for Integrating Local Knowledge into Spatial Planning" (Springer 2017) I claim that the initial practical goals of public participation in planning are "the exposure of residents' local knowledge and the incorporation of that knowledge into the planning and decision-making processes".
Relevant answer
Answer
As to the possibility of public participation, I think one important factor is whether or not people are organized.  Many have shown that individuals are less interested in or less likely to participate in planning activities such as public hearings than their organizations such as NGOs or homeowners associations (HOA).  When there are homeowners associations in the local area, they are more active in local planning activities.  Then, a question remains open: how will the renters' interests be represented in public particiaption in planning?  Should they be represented given their much higher mobility?  Should they rely more on "exit" than on "voice"?  Public participation is certainly a method for people to "voice" their preferences or knowledge on local affairs.

What parameters and evaluation criteria could be used to clarify if the performed option could be considered as "Best, Good, Fair, or In-adequate"?
It may be difficult to identify a system that can be applied regardless the regional, cultural, policy and/or socio-economic context. However, to agree on basic parameters and criteria for evaluation and judgement and to provide methods / tools that could enhance the comparibility of data (which are often gathered under a ruling national context) would be very desirable, especially in view of the establishment of baseline data and the Sustainable Development Goals that will demand to provide and compare data from all nations for the specifically envisioned waste management targets.

The lack of social and cultural policies are visible in developing countries. May be, the stress on these policies can enable development after all other means are exhausted?
Relevant answer
Answer
I think that, unfortunately, it is very hard for outsiders to help countries with poor, weak,  or conflicted institutions to develop better ones. The track record of foreign aid and similar innovations is rather poor. Western attempts to make a positive difference in the Arab Spring uprisings were frustrated in nearly every instance, to take one example. Another society's customs and institutions are hard enough for insiders to understand and are a near black box to outsiders. Even if outsiders' motives are pure, obviously not something to take for granted, they have a hard time knowing how to help efficiently. We need a deeper understanding of human behavior and the evolution of human institutions before we can have more than marginally effective methods for helping other societies, again not even to worry about purity of motives. Perhaps the best we can do at the moment is provide humanitarian assistance so as to keep people alive to try again. Western societies developed strong institutions that support prosperity and democracy over about a 500 year long period. The later developing countries are catching up faster than it took the original pioneers, witness Japan, Korea, China, and India. That is encouraging, but it would certainly be good to do better.
In the meantime Some of us in the West need to look after our own problems. I was in a meeting a couple of weeks ago in which US DOD funders were talking blithely needing to better understand failed states. I remarked that I might apply for a grant to study the US Congress!
