Dr Maeve Liston, Mary Immaculate College, and a member of our Learning Limerick Steering Group, presented at the both the Learning Cities Summer School and Symposium events in Larissa, Greece last June 2018. The theme of the Symposium was ‘Building a Learning City “Innovative methods & projects” and the presenters provided an evaluation of successful projects that help build a Learning Cities based on the UNESCO concept of a learning city, while aiming to form a strong network of UNESCO Learning Cities’ experts. Some feedback from the summer school was for Learning Cities to focus on participants and their needs i.e. activating the citizens, and that Learning Cities could consider having a smaller number of bigger impact events. The role of Advisors /Learning Ambassadors was also discussed. A finding from the summer school was also to ‘Start within the schools – as that is where the perception of learning starts!’ From Maeve’s participation in this event and also from Learning Limerick’s own research, we can conclude that our partnership approach in Limerick is on track. We will continue to share best practice and ideas as part of future symposia and our collaborations with networks of learning citiy-regions.
