Global Citizen Awards 2017.

Deirdre Gavin receiving her Silver Global Citizen Award.

We’re delighted to once again have members of Development Perspectives receive their Global Citizen Awards this year. Deirdre Gavin and Aoife Kirk received their Silver awards during the ceremony in the Smock Alley Theatre in May.

The ceremony aims to highlight each winner’s achievement and dedication to raising awareness here in Ireland of global issues. The keynote speech on the day was delivered by Michael Doorly, Head of Active Citizenship in Concern Worldwide and Volunteer Sending Agencies had an opportunity to showcase their work through information stands.

Development Perspectives’ Public Engagement officer Deborah Conlon spoke at the event as a past award winner and as a member of the Standards and Awards committee.

Deirdre Gavin was also invited to speak, as an Awardee, on Newstalk’s Global Village with Dil Wickremasinghe about her experiences.
