The Glen Learning Neighbourhood
is one of Corks Newest Learning Neighbourhoods.
The community of people working and living in The Glen have come together to celebrate and promote the benefits of learning on the Northside of Cork City.
Awarded Learning Neighbourhood status in 2018, The Glen kicked off their learning year with a variety of initiatives including a focus on Mental Health for all ages, recording the oral heritage of the Glen as it heads for its 50th birthday and an emphasis on learning for life.
Adopting the phrase 'Living is Learning and Learning is Living' is a key aspiration for the Glen Learning Neighbourhood.
The highpoint of the year so far was the unveiling of the Glen Learning Neighbourhood Flag on Thursday 22nd November 2018, followed by a Charity Art Sale for Suicide Awareness in ABLES in The Glen Community Services Building, in conjunction with Shine A Light Suicide and Mental Health Awareness group to raise funds for Shine A Light and to raise awareness on Mental Health issues as part of the year-long Learning Neighbourhood Programme.
Moving towards August will see a series of events held to conclude year as Learning Neighbourhood.
