Young or old, learning continues throughout our lives. The COVID-19 pandemic didn't put a stop to many agencies in Cork City who help us continue our lifelong learning journey.
The Cork Learning City and Cork Lifelong Learning Festival launched a campaign on March 18th called ‘Keeping our Learning communities connected’.
Three examples of the response to this call are:
The Project has been established as a meeting, learning and creative space in Cork, running community education, development, solidarity- and resilience-building initiatives, and prides itself on being ‘…a place of welcome where people, no matter what their background, race, age or gender, can feel at home and voice their hopes in working for a better world…’. The project has initiated a series of online tutor sessions and wellbeing posts regularly in the weeks since March 18th and keeps connected with more vulnerable learners through regular personal calls and texts.
In response to COVID-19 restrictions, Cork City Libraries have had to adjust their services and means of communications.
They have published a newsletter, Plan B for Bealtaine with news and updates on what they have been doing to keep their services going with an innovative spin.
