Fun exploring Ireland's wild beaches teaming with life
Rosses Neighbourhood Youth Project in North West Donegal has been exploring the rock pools along the wild Atlantic beaches at Carrickfinn and Mullaghderg. As part of the July summer programme, members have been spending time outdoors connecting with nature and learning about their surroundings.
The Story Bridge Archive - Connecting Communities
Foróige want young people to actively connect with their community this summer in a meaningful and long-lasting way through The Foróige Story Bridge Archive.
Throughout July and August, we want younger generations to record short 15 minute interviews with older people in their family or community about their experiences of the COVID-19 lockdown. Whilst also taking the opportunity to capture observations and memories of local and national events in their earlier lives and their own experience of being a teenager.
Calling all budding entrepreneurs!
Foróige NFTE is running a Design Challenge over the summer for young people all around the country. The NFTE Design Challenge is focused on solving problems facing our society using an entrepreneurial mind-set. Young people can enter the challenge individually or as a group. Participants are asked to develop an idea for a product, service or innovation that will help solve an issue facing society either locally, nationally or globally.
The Youth Entrepreneur of the Year competition is a highlight of the Foróige year where the Top nine youth-driven businesses in the country, who have participated in the NFTE Youth Entrepreneurship Programme, are invited to present their achievements to an expert panel of Judges. The competition took place online this year with young people taking part in both regional and semi-final competitions to be selected as a finalist.
This year featured some of the most creative and inspirational work this competition has seen.
