Abstract

“The task of education is to prepare students for a world that is not yet there”, says German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk (Van Stralen & Gudde, 2012). One could argue that urban development deals with the task of preparing the (urban) world that is not yet here. In this paper we highlight the role of learning in urban development. We take up our contribution to REALCORP2014 (Peek & Troxler, 2014) in which we applied the transition perspective to the field of urban development.Based on our research over the past five yearswe review that paper and propose some conditions that may foster learning in urban development. In 2014 we advocated Urban Open Innovation Environments as a potential transitional force in the changing field of urban development from the perspective of the Smart Cityconcept and underpinning this with some preliminary examples of these environments in the city of Rotterdam. Five years later we may look back on the actual changes in the field of urban development and its discourse (Buitelaar et al., 2014), including the rise of the Resilient City-concept (Rotterdam University & Pratt Institute New York, 2014). In Rotterdam, as in other cities, the role of areas with a regional innovation eco-system has been much debated (Clark et al., 2016). This resulted in a clearer view on the position of various urban locations where innovation is to be promoted and provided us with two cases to compare their open innovation potential (Peek & Meijer, 2016). Our findingsdirect us towards the role of learning within urban development.
