Members of Limerick Youth Service were among youth groups from across Ireland who travelled to Dublin last month for a week covering a variety of social issues.
Organised by the National Youth Council of Ireland, One World Week was a week of youth-led awareness raising, education and action on local and global justice issues to take action to bring about change.
The young people showcased work on the theme â€˜Consume with Careâ€™ through artistic creations, drama and photography.
â€œDespite the current recession, young people continue to show a deep commitment to action in solidarity with other young people around the world.
â€œThey are increasingly aware of global issues such as recession, trade and relations between countries, and how they impact on young peopleâ€™s lives and opportunities.
â€œToday is a showcase of the creative ways in which young people are tackling this important issue,â€ said Johnny Sheehan, development education co-ordinator in the National Youth Council of Ireland.
The National Youth Council of Ireland is a membership-led umbrella organisation that represents and supports the interests of 55 voluntary youth organisations and uses experience to act on issues that affect young people throughout the country.
