Irish Loop Regional Workshop
The Harris Centre's seventh Regional Workshop was held in
partnership with the Irish Loop Development Board (Zone 20) on
November 23rd, 2007 at Bauline East, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Attendees included participants from Memorial University as well as
a variety of stakeholders from Zone 20. The purpose of this
workshop was to promote Memorial University as a resource for
regional policy and development throughout the province through
research, teaching and outreach activities as well as to identify
future opportunities within the Zone in which Memorial University
could become involved.
Thirty-six people attended the Regional Workshop and the broad
range of participants from Memorial University coupled with the
diverse group of local stakeholders made for an informative,
educational, and rewarding experience for those involved.
There were a total of 22 follow-up opportunities identified at the
workshop – 11 in Social and Cultural Heritage, 6 in Labour
Market Development, and 5 in Environment/Natural Resources. These
opportunities will now go through the Harris Centre’s
follow-up process for ideas generated at the workshops.
The workshop was held in conjunction with a Memorial Presents
forum, entitled "How to Make the Irish Loop a Leader in
Environmental Excellence". More information on this event can be
