Workshop 1 

Enable Ireland's Virtual Service Sessions

This session will introduce the content of the virtual service and show how it is delivered. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of the service and the importance of peer learning and co-production within this vibrant learning community.

Workshop 2 

Games-Based Learning and Games Design

This session will provide an introduction to why and how Trócaire uses Games Based Learning and game design in our programmes and workshops. We will explore how students are encouraged to explore global justice issues through playing games created by Trócaire, but also the potential transformative impact of young people designing their own games on these issues.


The session will be online via Zoom and links to attend will be sent upon registration.
