More Information

Our programme brings young people together from all over the world to deepen their understanding of global youth work, linking issues of concern for young people from the local to the global. We believe that collaborative long-term engagement is the best possible way to support young people who are passionate about a fairer, just and more sustainable world.

Using games-based learning, participatory methodologies and cross-cultural collaborations, young people will have opportunities to share and develop their knowledge and skills in critical thinking, intercultural communication, teamwork, games-basedlearning and the fundamentals of youth leadership. The result will be young people implementing outreach in their youth groups and communities as agents of change and Trócaire youth leaders.

The theme of the programme is climate justice and is rooted in the sustainable development goals (SDGs)
