Cork Learning City has announced that they will be celebrating Lifelong Learning in a new way for 2021.

This year the festival cannot take place this year due to ongoing government restrictions instead, but in its place Cork Learning City will use the week of the Festival 22nd – 26th to launch a new initiative.

During the week Cork Learning City will hold a series of lunchtime webinars which will introduce the new Learning Cities Awards to celebrate learning across early years, primary and secondary school, further education, higher education and adult education (community and workplace learning) as well as highlighting exceptional and inspirational learning.

This is a great opportunity for the people of Cork to nominate individuals and projects that have inspired Cork Learning City by their innovation endeavour and resilience through their Lifelong Learning actions over the past year.

These awards are a celebration of how lifelong learning enables people to change their lives and how learning has become a way to improvement in life, work and community.

Free tickets for the weeks Cork Celebrates Lifelong Learning Lunchtime events are available now on Eventbrite.

Join Cork Learning City to find out how to nominate exceptional individuals or projects in your area and to see some examples of best practice from other Learning Cities.
