Do you wish Ireland and the world were safe and equal? Are you interested in learning more gender inequality and gender based violence or sharing your own experiences? Would you like to hear from writers, leaders, activists and experts from around the world? and Safe Ireland invite young people from across the country to The Safe World Summit 2018, October 22 & 23 in Dublin. Join us for two days of revolutionary thinking on issues of gender, inclusion, diversity, equality, peace, justice, safety, wellbeing, and courageous leadership. Together we believe it is possible to make our homes and communities free of gender based violence, but we need the help of young people to make this dream a reality.
