Community Day Program - Limerick May 7th

The first day of the summit determines the direction of the second day. Community stakeholders, from youth to parents and caregivers, to teachers, school administrators and mental health experts, to law enforcement, criminal justice workers and policymakers, to community leaders and not-for-profits, governmental representatives, youth innovators and advocates, industry leaders and international experts.


This multi-stakeholder group will identify the issues to be further developed during the Dublin Industry Day. While the group takes the discussions where they think they need to go, there are several issues they need to define, prioritize and deliver during the summit first day. (We've listed those below.)

Participants at our two-day summits are expected to participate, not just sit there and listen. We choose our participants carefully, looking for the right balance of experts, passionate advocates and under-represented stakeholders, especially young people. If selected, participants will be given homework in advance of the event. Surveys, polls and opinions will be gathered. Basic information shared, so everyone can hit the day running. And it's a two-way street. We share with you and you share with us. We will assign you topics and viewpoints for the day and expect active and engaged participation. Those not fulfilling our pre-summit work will find their invitation rescinded. Space is extremely limited and unless you care enough to contribute your time and attention to making this work, stay home and watch it on webcast. We have a serious problem we have to tackle - together.

For those participating from home:
No room is big enough for everyone who wants to join us. So, we'll be webcasting and taking input in advance and during the events.

Surveys, polls and questions will be shared in advance. Be part of this!

Taking It To Dublin:


60 -100 youth participants and 40 - 50 adult participants will be invited to attend the second day of the summit, in Dublin on May 9, 2015, hosted at Facebook International Headquarters. Some will be invited in advance. Others will be identified for their special contributions at the Limerick event.


All participants must arrange for and cover their costs of travel, any accommodations and meals (other than lunch, which is provided by Facebook to all participants).

Our first survey and polls. We protect your privacy, will never share your identity with anyone and respect your opinions. Please share the link with your friends and peers.
