This chapter introduces “Kyoto Alliance”, a human resource development initiative in cooperation and collaboration with a wide range of fields and sectors in Kyoto Prefecture. The Kyoto Alliance is collaboratively organised by nine universities (Kyoto University, Kyoto Prefectural University, Kyoto Sangyo University, Kyoto Tachibana University, Kyoto Bunkyo University, Doshisha University, The University of Fukuchiyama, Bukkyo University and Ryukoku University), multiple local governments (Kyoto Prefecture and Kyoto City), NPOs and economic organisations in Kyoto. The ideal image of human resources pursued by the Kyoto Alliance is “Local Public Human Resources (LPHR)”. “The Certified Manager of Public Policy” is a leading-edge Kyoto Model in which LPHR abilities are visualised in the form of qualification. This chapter considers that universities and local communities have the potential for reciprocal learning from each other, accumulating practical wisdom which leads to regional revitalisation, and creating a new learning space.
