Love Learning Campaign

We want everyone to know that Bristol is a Learning City, to get involved, learn new things and help spread the word. Our campaign tagline is ‘Love Learning’.

Learning activities and events will be promoted around the city using the Love Learning stamp. This will signpost learning opportunities for everyone, so whatever your age or background and wherever you live in Bristol you will know where learning is taking place and have the chance to try something new.

How can you get involved?

Learning Theme of the Month

Each month the Love Learning campaign will focus on a different theme to try and encourage everyone to get involved in learning.

Take a look below at the different themes that we have focused on so far this year and in 2016. Our dedicated Storify pages will provide you with ideas of how to get involved with each theme as well as provide you with resources such as videos, articles and learning quotes.

Keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook too and ‘retweet’ and ‘share’ as many themed messages as you can!
