Young Social Innovators will be back on the road in 2024!

That's right! We will be travelling around the country to hear young people speaking out on issues they care passionately about and we can't wait!

The Speak Out Tour offers a unique opportunity to all of the teams taking part in YSI's Social Innovation Activate: Senior Cycle to attend an event in their region and to present their ideas for a better world to their peers, invited guests and of course our Speak Out Panel.

Some eleven events will take place in locations throughout Ireland over the month of March and we can't wait to hear about the issues this year's teams are addressing and the ideas they have come up with to change things for the better!

Full Tour dates and locations are below.
