It was such an honour to get the opportunity to speak at the #ChildrenNowRightsNow event today in Croke Park to mark 25 years since Ireland ratified the UN Convention on the rights of the child (UNCRC).

It is so important that we remember that the #UNCRC is more than just a piece of policy but a promise we made to this generation and the generations that follow to provide them opportunities, to protect them and to also respect their voices. It is vital that we never stop working to make sure we are keeping our promise.

Huge thanks to the Ombudsman for Children for inviting me along, and look forward to seeing all the events taking place this year to celebrate #UNCRC25!

AbbVie, in partnership with The Irish Times recently hosted a STEM-focused event. Its aim was to explore how Irish industry, educators, professional bodies and other stakeholders can work together to deliver optimum engagement in the STEM disciplines and help steer our students to future success.

As Director of the Digital Youth Council I was invited along to the event to offer my opinion on the discussion but unfortunately, I could not make it. However, I fully support discussions like these taking place as it is important that we are discussing how we can get more young people involved in STEM. Just looking at one aspect of STEM, technology, there will be over 45,000 jobs in the ICT sector in Europe in 2020, these are roles that need to be filled and if we can get more young people involved in STEM, these are roles young people can fill in the future.

Check out the first of two videos from the event now (I will be posting the second video tomorrow).
