Young Social Innovator

YSI 2015On Friday 16th January a group of Transition Years from St Brendan’s went to the Gresham Hotel in Cork to take part in the Community of Social Innovators conference. Bravely taking on the cold conditions David Casey, David Kenny, Cian A O Sullivan, Tommy Counihan, Eoin Daly, Kevin D’arcy and Eoghan Gill set off early Friday morning to experience the original and exciting innovations being carried out by schools in Cork and Kerry while being given the opportunity to appraise and criticise their work.

John Lonergan gave an inspiring workshop on the importance of community and how young people in particular have a vital role in revitalising and reviving communities through social innovation. The group came away from the day with new ideas for COSI but also for their YSI projects.
