Thank you for visiting the website of the Nottinghamshire Network of U3As, a county network within the Association of East Midlands U3As (www.eastmidlandsu3as.org.uk).
The Nottinghamshire Network of U3As is a federation of U3As that have joined together to support each other in the promotion of informal learning and the cultural and social development of their members. The inaugural meeting was held in January 2009.
The U3A is an amazing organisation. The word ‘university’ in this context is used in its original sense of people coming together to learn. In the UK it has been running since 1982 but is part of an international organisation begun in France in the 1970s. Membership is increasing rapidly, as is the number of U3As. The U3A is a self -help organisation offering older people no longer in fulltime employment the opportunity of lifelong learning within a friendly and sociable framework. Each U3A acts autonomously but is affiliated to the Third Age Trust that is the national representative body providing a wide range of services to the U3As.
There is more information about the network on the About Us tab.
National Holocaust Centre and Museum Visit
Wed 5th October, 2016
This day presents an engaging and interactive day, unique to U3A members, which enables shared learning and the opportunity to create and reflect. The day will explore the history of the Holocaust, and consider lessons it may present to society today through considering the question 'Is there anything that can be learned from the Holocaust?'
Full information about the programme is on this poster.
