Léargas Forum 2019

December 3 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

An Inclusive Europe: Stronger Together

Dublin Castle Conference Centre

Tuesday 03 December 2019


Join us on 03 December for the Léargas Forum at Dublin Castle Conference Centre. We have an exciting day planned with a keynote address from Hazel Chu, a performance from Experience Japan Taiko Team and a lively panel discussion about the role of educational exchange and cooperation programmes in building a more inclusive Europe. As political and socio-economic shifts in Europe and the wider world create a climate of unpredictability, it has become more important than ever to counter marginalisation and exclusion. We believe that European values and the programmes we manage have a part to play in building a more inclusive Europe, where we are truly stronger together.


  • Keynote address – Dublin City Councillor Hazel Chu
  • Panel discussion – The role of educational exchange and cooperation programmes in building a more inclusive Europe, with panellists including Tony Geudens (SALTO Inclusion), Conor Galvin (UCD), and project participants

  • Ask Léargas Hub – our staff will answer your questions about all our programmes and initiatives, including the 2020 Erasmus+ call for applications.

Turning Spaces to Learning Places: The Possibilities of Real Niche-learning in Education – Conor Galvin

Classrooms and even schools do not have a monopoly on learning spaces. The world teems with wonders and opportunities for doing, making, and thinking in and through niche spaces. It also offers multiple ways of engaging spaces in support of deeper learning. In this workshop we explore examples of places and spaces that help learning to happen. It’s all a bit hands-on, so be prepared to help move stuff about if necessary!

Using Research Results to Increase Engagement – RAY Network/Léargas

The RAY Network researches the impact of Erasmus+ Youth in Action on young people and youth organisations across Europe. This workshop will present the Network’s most recent results, and explore how organisations can actively use these results to increase engagement among their own stakeholders.
