The Learn Well, Live Well: adult learning and health and wellbeing report has been produced over the past few months as part of the UK programme for the European Agenda on Adult Learning (managed by the Learning and Work Institute). It has been compiled and edited by the NI Impact Forum on Adult Learning and Belfast Learning City.
The report has six thematic chapters written by academics and practitioners and is illustrated by 16 case studies from across Northern Ireland and Ireland. Collectively they show the impact that adult learning has on health and wellbeing, both directly and indirectly. As the world struggles with the Covid-19 pandemic and looks to life thereafter, the evidence of the report points to the importance of support and investment in learning lifelong and lifewide.
Contributors to the event include: Raúl Valdés-Cotera (UNESCO Inst. of Lifelong Learning), Stephen Evans (Learning and Work Institute), Kelly Gilliland (Belfast City Council) and Bryan Nelson (Belfast Health & Social Care Trust).
