President Higgins is inviting applications from young people from Leitrim aged 17 to 26 to take part in the Being Young and Irish workshop which will take place in NUI Galway on Saturday, September 29th.
The workshop will explore young people’s ideas on three main questions: What is your vision for Ireland? What can you and other young people do to help achieve this Ireland? What else needs to happen to make this possible?
To take part in the Connacht workshop, you people must be available to attend on September 29th and must send their application to attend the workshop to Áras an Uachtaráin by July 30th. Online and printable applications forms are available at www.president.ie/regional-workshops.
Young people across Ireland are also invited to submit ideas to the President’s consultation process which takes place from May 25th until the end of September.
The information gathered throughout this consultation process will feed into a national seminar at Áras an Uachtaráin later in the year. The Connacht workshop forms part of this consultation process.
