Third level education programmes

Third level education programmes

We offer two innovative initiatives for third-level student participation.

Each programme and competition has been carefully designed to challenge students to reflect on global issues and how they can be solved. It’s a great way to learn more about the world around you, and how you can help make it better.

Concern Debates Adjudicators

With over 140 schools competing every year in at least three debates, adjudicators are the lifeblood of the Concern Debates programme as each debate requires one independent adjudicator.

Between October and January, the Concern Debates team will be organising over 400 individual debates and would love for you to sign up to our wonderful panel of adjudicators and hear the insightful views of today’s youth on global issues!

Interested in becoming a Concern Debates adjudicator? Contact debates@concern.net 

Project Us

Project Us explores how issues at the local level connect to the UN’s Global Goals, the international pathway towards creating a more equal world by 2030. It is a unique forum for the people of Ireland, to share ideas, raise our voices and connect.

Our Project Us coffee conversation events are coming to your city in 2019 to bring communities together to reflect on the issues that matter to us and get ideas on the Global Goals sparking!
