CULTURE & EDUCATION

Education has been a key driver in the Columbanus project, echoing the respect for learning of the early monks. Schools have been involved in joint projects, including between Bangor, Bregenz (Austria), Andora (Liguria), Bobbio and Luxeuil (France). These projects have not only enabled the children to learn about other cultures and schooling but have also facilitated exchange visits between teachers of the different countries.

On the cultural side, music has become a key theme in the development of international relations, involving in particular the choirs of Northern Ireland, France and Italy engaged in the project.
