Celebrating Education and Learning in London


On the 19th July a range of top speakers and organisations joined us to Celebrate Education and Learning in London.

Munira Mirza, Deputy Mayor for Education and Culture was the keynote speaker, alongside Councillor Andrew Harper from London Borough of Barnet and London Councils and showcase presentations from City Year London, London Leadership Strategy, Generating Genius and Mozilla. Munira praised the work of The Education Foundation:

“I welcome the Education Foundation’s focus on fresh ideas in this new education landscape for London”

The Summer reception celebrated the achievements and work of key people engaged in education and learning in London. On the eve of the London Olympics and Paralympics, it was a great time to take stock of the significant effort and success in London’s schools, colleges, councils, universities and other learning settings and the way in which London as a city has come together to harness the potential of young people’s learning. From the London Challenge to world class education and learning institutions to Tech City – London has led the way in how modern cities approach education and learning for the 21st Century. The event shared the rich diversity of the capital in its approach to education and learning.

The event was kindly supported by City Year London and the London Leadership Strategy. Photos of the event are available here.
