Cara, Anna and Amy interviewed Social Innovator and Campaigner Ruairi McKiernan at the Léargas forum. Ruairi delivered a very thoguth provoking keynote address and we used our interview to get him to recap on some of the ideas he spoke about. Ruairi shared some insights into life in a direct provision centre as well as some reasons why we need to stand in solidarity with those who are marginalised in our society. He spoke about the need to find work with purpose and the need to re-energise ourselves in order to be able to continue standing in solidarity with others. Ruairi spoke about the very important work of youth organisations and how they can help so many young people. Finally he shared about the imprtance of Erasmus+ projects like ‘Building Walls, Breaking Walls’.
