Fine Gael MEP Brian Hayes visited The Big Picture in Tallaght this week to personally congratulate Foróige on winning the prestigious European Citizen's Prize for 2017, which was awarded in recognition of the organisation's Youth Citizenship Programme.

He toured the building in Tallaght, and spoke to young people from The Big Picture Youth Café Committee about their 2017 Citizenship project, which saw the members organise a "No Technology Night".

They also told him about the various activities and programmes that take place for young people in The Big Picture, and also about the Foróige Leadership for Life Programme.

He and his fellow MEPs Seán Kelly, Mairead McGuinness and Deirdre Clune nominated Foróige for the prize, which the European Parliament awards to projects and initiatives that facilitate cross-border cooperation and promote understanding within the EU.
