Event Description

Europe as a Global Actor Exhibition has been on display in EDIC Letterkenny for the month of April.

One of the objectives of the Europe Direct Centre in 2016 is the provision of information and stimulation of awareness and debate on ‘Europe as a Global Actor’. Since the EU is the largest provider of aid throughout the world & not just within the EU, we aim to highlight this fact to the general public, schools & all age groups within Donegal. We have put together an exhibition on this topic and will be making  it available for display in  libraries in all Municipal Districts as well as the Magill Summer School in July.

The exhibition consists of a standard 6 panel blue board, a number of publications for the public to read and two large posters that are hung on the table holding the publications or a nearby wall if it is more suitable.

Throughout April the exhibition was viewed by many varied groups including school groups, Bealtaine participants, audiences at EDIC events such as the EURES Jobs Fair, Europe Day & Climate Change workshops. In total around 260 viewed the exhibition.

The exhibition will go on tour throughout Co Donegal as follows:

Buncrana Library 16 – 30 May; Carndonagh Library 13 – 27 June; Magill Summer School 16  -23 July; Ballybofey Library 1-15 August; Milford Library 29 Aug – 12 September; Leabharlann Phobail Na Rossan 24 October – 7 November & Bundoran Library 21 November – 5 December.
