On the 11th of July, Dr Camilla Fitzsimons was delighted to be involved in the launch of the research report Purpose, People, Process: Community Education in Donegal 2018. The research was carried out by Dr Liam McGlynn and Jacqui Gage and it uncovers a thriving community education sector in Donegal. In her address, Dr Fitzsimons encouraged attendees to hold firm on the equality based commitments expressed by practitioners and linked national events to wider global circumstances including a political shift to the right, and the negative impacts of climate change.
Dr Fitzsimons also suggested that the strong links between the Donegal Education and Training Board (ETB) and its partner organisations within the community sector is a shining example of collaboration in action and one which others both nationally and internationally should look to for inspiration.
