Learning Limerick announced a further commitment to advancing Limerick’s progress as a Learning Region when its partners signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Thursday 7th March 2019 in Limerick City Hall. This agreement is a strong statement of their intent and support for the Learning City-Region initiative for Limerick. All of the organisations involved in Learning Limerick work together to promote awareness of the importance of lifelong learning, and to influence education and skills policy on a local, national and international level. They also seek to position learning at the centre of development planning in the Limerick region in all communities, sectors and settings.
The signing of the Memorandum also saw the launch of the introduction of Learning Limerick Ambassadors. The ambassadors are a diverse group of individuals, who themselves have demonstrated that learning is for people of all ages and from all areas. Their main role is to help reach as many people as possible and inspire them to participate in learning, through promoting the idea of lifelong learning in their own communities, workplaces and neighbourhoods. This event reinforced and strengthened the collaboration and promotion of the Learning Limerick initiative.
