Interview with Panel Discussion Members

Amy and Cara interviewed members of the panel discussion from today’s Leargus Forum. The panel was made up of Conor Galvin (UCD), Cristina Iancu and Dean Murray (NYCI Young Voices), Kieran Brosnan (Holy Family Senior School) and Tony Geudens (SALTO Inclusion).  In the panel discussion many themes were raised and we teased those out with the panel members in the interview. These themes were:

  • The rise of hate speech and what we can do to counteract .
  • The need to engage with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
  • The need to provide young people like ourselves with a voice.
  • The impact that youth groups have had on some of you and the young people you work with .
