PASCAL Conference 16-19 Oct 2019 – Cork/Skellig

The 2019 conference will have a focus on adult/lifelong learning place-making and cohesion. This three-day international conference will bring together scholars and practitioners who develop learning opportunities in community settings. 

The communities that epitomise the contemporary world are diverse, ranging spatially from inner cities to remote rural areas and encapsulating the complex web of identities that are part of life today. And learning by people at all ages is at the core of problem solving in the face of 21st century problems. 

The themes of resilience and lifelong learning will cover some of the key challenges to be explored among experts and with stakeholders and community people in Cork UNESCO Learning City and at the Skellig Centre for Research and Innovation in Skellig Coast area of the Iveragh peninsula in county Kerry.

The conference will be launched in Cork City on Wednesday 16th October, 2019 at the Council Chamber, Cork City Hall commencing at 6pm.

Day 1 on Thursday 17th October will take place in the Triskel Christchurch Registration will open at 8.00am. The morning will consist of a welcome address, plenary and parallel sessions followed by lunch and a Learning Cities tour. At 3pm, buses will depart Cork City for Waterville, South Kerry where Day 2 and Day 3 of the conference will continue. Further details and practical arrangements are outlined below.
