#LearnuaryNI is a brand new Campaign by to encourage and support individuals to learn one new thing every day over the course of one month – 31 days: between January 1 and February 14 2018.


Centred around 1 January – the date of the “New Years Resolution” and in consideration of “Blue Monday” ( a name given to a day in January claimed to be the most depressing day of the year),  the campaign will seek participants to share on their social media channels the 1 thing they have newly learnt, or taught, each day using the hashtag #LearnuaryNI.


In order to ‘inspire learning’ individuals are encouraged to look at the various challenge blogs and Pinterest Boards to see what learning is available for them to get their teeth stuck into throughout the 4 to 6 weeks between January 1 and February 14, 2018.


Challengers can also set their own individual learning objectives, for example aspiring #LearnuaryNI participants could ‘pin’ together on a Pinterest Board their wish list of 31 learning objectives and/or the 31 learning opportunities they have found that peek their interest or could fulfil their learning goals, complete a calendar of ideas or simply write a list.


To assist individuals to plan and stay on their #LearnuaryNI quest will provide information on countless learning opportunities across a range of disciplines. From business and arts to sports, languages, history, IT, science, nutrition, mental health and more. Challengers can click on Find a Course or visit one of a number of specific discipline related #LearnuaryNI blogs.


#LearnuaryNI is aimed at every individual and citizen in Northern Ireland, from business owners, entrepreneurs and employees to the retired, unemployed, volunteers, carers of all ages and all backgrounds.


The #LearnuaryNI campaign will seek Learning Ambassadors and Influencers to showcase their daily examples in order to inspire their respective audiences to learn something new every day alongside them.


#LearnuaryNI also aims to activate various training providers and learning establishments or those with learning goals to generate their own evergreen blog ideas or “listicles”.


To officially graduate from #LearnuaryNI you simply need to share on your chosen social media channel eg. facebook, instagram, twitter, Pinterest, Snapchat, LinkedIn or Google+ 1 learning each day for 31  days between January 1 and February 14, 2018 and submit a short reflective statement by email to before midnight on 14 February, 2018.
