Cork Celebrates Lifelong Learning 2021


Cork Learning City is delighted to announce that we will be celebrating Lifelong Learning in a new way for 2021  and we would like everyone to be involved.  As Cork’s internationally acclaimed, inspirational and inclusive festival, Cork Lifelong Learning Festival cannot unfortunately take place this year due to ongoing government restrictions instead, we will use the week of the Festival 22nd – 26th to launch this new initiative.


During the week we will hold a series of lunchtime webinars which will introduce our 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 us 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 us 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.
