Youth Summit 1: We’ve got the Power: Education as a Tool for Global Change
November 23, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm GMT
Education is a vital and important structure within society. The lives of young people are heavily moulded and developed through the process of formal and non-formal education. What can be an inspiring and powerful experience for some, can be a challenging and disempowering time for others. During this event, we will hear from young people in Ireland and from different parts of the world.
We would like to hear what you learned from participating on the livestream and what thoughts and ideas you would like to share.
Monitoring and evaluating our work also allows us to learn from the event so we would really appreciate you taking a little time to please complete this survey:
Free of charge
