Being Young and Irish
In his inaugural address President Higgins expressed his wish to engage with young people as part of a series of seminars during his Presidency. In 2012 he called on young people to ‘Take Charge of Change’ and invited them to share their vision for Ireland’s future with him.
Over four months President Higgins gathered young people’s suggestions and ideas for Ireland’s future through an online consultation and four regional workshops.
At the end of those four months the Being Young and Irish report was published.
