Legacy Dublin 2024 is an initiative organised by the global social enterprise, Common Purpose. The Programme will take place for the third year in Dublin, from November 13 to November 15, opening on the first evening in IDA Ireland and continuing for the next two days at The Foundry, Google.

Over three days, a diverse group of 120 young people, aged 18 to 25, will gather to explore the future of their city and imagine what they would like their legacy to be in terms of their human, social and civic impact. They will continue to explore the themes of previous Legacy programmes - Inclusion, Purpose, Identity, Belonging and Representation - but this year they will be challenged to put empathy into action and discover how to demonstrate Allyship in everyday activities.

Legacy Dublin 24 is organised in association with headline sponsor, IDA Ireland, is hosted by Google and is supported by Broadlake, Department of Rural & Community Development, Dublin City Council - Social Inclusion Unit, EY,  Irish Rail and NTMA.  The organisers are delighted to have confirmed a media partner this year - Spin 1038. 

The launch today will be followed by an outreach to young people in Dublin to register for a place at Legacy Dublin 2023.  The main requirement? A passion for Dublin and an interest in being one of the leaders who will shape its future.
