This key note address will offer a series of reflections and analyses of how identities grow and change over the life-span of the individual, and the learning processes that are used to achieve this. The survey will be undertaken with specific reference to civic identities. I will draw on a range of writers and researchers, and on pan-European examples, using cultural references that are both familiar and unfamiliar. There will also be some reference to aspects of the context of Barcelona.
