Aged 18-30? The call is now open for @IDEAIreland’s Young Global Advocates programme

The Irish Development Education Association (IDEA)  is offering a fantastic opportunity for young people living in Ireland (aged 18-30) to become part of a Europe-wide Global Advocates Network.

The Young Global Advocates Network is part of a three-year EC-funded programme run by IDEA. The programme is called “Challenging the Crisis”. It aims to empower young people from the most indebted countries in Europe (Ireland, Greece, Italy, Spain, Slovenia and Portugal) to become active, to work together to identify and overcome the issues that are affecting them as a result of the economic crisis.

As part of the programme the Young Global Advocates will be supported to devise and run their own Europe-wide campaign. So if you are a passionate young person (aged 18- 30) who would like the opportunity to make a big difference please APPLY HERE NOW! Or share the link with young people you know. The application deadline is Friday 7th February 2014.

IDEA is also offering Challenging the Crisis workshops with groups of young people interested in learning more about the global economic crisis, how it is affecting young people in Ireland right now, and what we can do about it together.
