Our Keynote Speaker is Tako Rietveld from the Netherlands with his presentation Making the voice of young people heard. 

Tako Rietveld is the world’s first and only ‘Youth Correspondent’.
Children look at the world from a different perspective than adults. They have their own unique thoughts, views and opinions. With Tako’s help, we can learn from the children and act on it. He will take us on his journey into the world of young people. With powerful examples he will show young people are more than just happy creatures that like to play. ‘Children inspire, surprise, make you think and make you smile. Adults teach children all about life. Children teach adults what life is all about.

As a former reporter for the Dutch NOS ‘Jeugdjournaal’ Tako has travelled all over the world reporting for children about the various situations in the world. Tako set-up the ‘De Kindercorrespondent’ platform so that the stories and the opinions of children can be heard. According to Tako children are too rarely heard in the news. He won’t stop until the voice of every child is being heard!

Other speakers include the Minister for Education and Skills, Mr. Richard Bruton T.DPaul Gilligan CEO of St. Patrick’s Mental Health Servicesand a spokesperson from the Ombudsman for Children’s Office.

Information stands will be available on the day from information providers and companies.
