  1. 1. Reviving Limerick CDB City of Learning Strategy January 2011
  2. 2. Learning and the Future of the City “ The city of the future will be organised around learning as its primary, productive activity, thus fusing the social and the economic with the educational.” (Mumford, L., “ The City in History” , 1961)

Why Limerick must be Learning in 2011 <ul><ul><li>Globalisation - exposed to a global world, cities are under increasing pressure to make profound changes in order to compete and prosper in the future. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Recession - demands that we learn how to do things differently & more efficiently, if we are to secure social and economic inclusion for all our citizens </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Digitalisation – rapid advances in information & communication technologies are impacting on the lives of all individuals, organisations & communities, and are fundamental to success in almost every arena </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Explosion of New Knowledge – particularly in the sciences & technologies </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In the current environment “change” is the only constant. However, “change through learning” is also the best response to managing the profound socio-economic change that is transforming economies, nations, industries & communities. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Learning occurs in every City. However, the essential & distinguishing feature of a Learning City is its explicit adoption of “Lifelong Learning” as an organising principle and a social /economic / cultural goal . A Learning City values, recognises and invests in LLL and purposefully integrates it within the analysis, planning and implementation of all sectoral and cross sectoral collaborative strategies. What is a Learning City?

Civic Sector (Local Government) Economic Sector (Private & Social Enterprise) Public Sector (Health, Social Protection, Libraries, Gardai, etc.) Educational Sector (Schools, Colleges, Training Agencies, etc.) Voluntary & Community Sector (Civil Society) LIFELONG LEARNING - A fundamental element of all strategies in the Learning City
