The promotion of a more inclusive society has been a cornerstone of the Presidency and political life of Michael D. Higgins. Throughout his term in office, the President has argued that achieving equality and inclusion is not simply about opportunities for the individual, but also about how we change our spaces and our institutions to ensure they actively encourage inclusion and empowerment.

The President’s ‘Participation and Transformation’ initiative is focused specifically on the importance of breaking down negative attitudes and discrimination, highlighting initiatives for inclusion and actively and vigorously promoting positive measures to support social, economic and political inclusion of all our citizens.
