Ireland’s largest youth summit, Zeminar, will be held at the RDS in Dublin from October 11th-13th, 2016.
Ireland rugby star, Jamie Heaslip and former Rose of Tralee, Maria Walsh were on hand today to launch the event. The conference will see Zeminar host a series of workshops, talks and activations inspired by the issues facing Generation Z.
Guest speakers will discuss a wide range of topics including sexuality, sport, technology, entrepreneurship, nutrition, wellness and bullying.
Confirmed guest speakers include Bressie, Lynn Ruane, David Gillick and Dr Rhona Mahony.
Among the exhibitors will be leading Irish youth group, Foróige, and the National Centre for Youth Mental Health, Headstrong.
Speaking at the launch, Zeminar CEO, Damien Clarke said, "Generation Z are growing up in a uniquely challenging and complex environment; unlike anything experienced by previous generations. It is our wish throughout our three-day event to introduce Generation Z to a network of support, tailor-made for them."
He added, "To date, the majority of youth-centric events have focused on one or two aspects of teenage life. Zeminar will address all of the issues facing young people in this new, technological age, making it the most all-encompassing youth event in Ireland."
