Amy, Anna and Cara interviewed four members of the panel discussing “The role of educational exchange and cooperation programmes in shaping the future of Europe” at the Léargas Forum. The panel members were Senator Alice Mary Higgins, an independent Senator and leader of the Civil Engagement Group in Seanad Éireann, John McLoughlin, Deputy Principal at Galway Technical Institute, Mary Moynihan, writer, theatre and film-maker and artistic director of Smashing Times International Centre for the Arts and Human Rights and Samantha Ncube, a ‘No Hate Speech’ youth ambassador and a participant int he European Youth in Migration forum.
Each of the panel members spoke a little about themselves and the projects they were involved in before sharing their thoughts with us on the importance of connections in shaping our future. Finally they spoke about how involvement in Erasmus+ projects can help to broaden the horizons of young people like ourselves.
