‘Taking the Lead! Action for global justice through youth work’ during the Irish Presidency of the EU

NYCI’s development education programme is working on a new project on taking action for global justice in youth work, in the lead-up to and during the Irish Presidency of the EU in 2013.

A one-day training on Wednesday 14 November (during One World Week) took place to start the project in Dublin city centre.he training is part of an NYCI project (with thanks to funding from Concern) called ‘Taking the Lead! Action for global justice through youth work’. Through the project, we hope to bridge the 2012 One World Week central action ‘Steps Towards a Fairer World’ (and the broader context of the ‘World We Want’/post-Millennium Development Goals) with the Irish Presidency of the EU as of January 2013.

The animation on this site explains on the context of our project really well: www.worldwewant.ie

What does the project involve?

  • Training to explore  the challenges and opportunities for engaging young people in taking action around international development and global justice issues in Dublin on Wednesday14 November 2012
  • Follow-on contact with and support from NYCI to youth workers developing action projects
  • Action projects with youth groups and youth workers (including those who participated in the above trainng) in the lead up to and during the Irish Presidency of the EU which begins in January 2013.
  • Youth groups who participate in the action projects will be invited to a showcase to display their work during the Irish Presidency (provisionally March 2013)
