This briefing looks at Cork (Ireland) and its “learning city” initiative, which brings together Cork’s two higher education institutions, along with other stakeholders, to support community-wide well-being, economic development, and social inclusion.

Document Highlights

Cork is Ireland’s second-largest city, and its economy relies on its pharmaceutical, high technology, and engineering sectors. At the same time, a large segment of the city’s population is made up of residents who, for various reasons, left formal education early.

In 2002, Cork City Council adopted a policy aimed at making Cork a “learning city.” This briefing looks at that initiative and explains why Cork can be a model for other communities.<>/p
