The Big Idea is a new programme for transition-year students in Ireland, with the aim of harnessing their creativity to help change the world. Launched in January this year, the first phase involves 500 students in three counties, with a plan to expand nationwide by 2024.
The programme targets practical issues facing our world today, and employs well-known professionals, proven experts in their fields, to mentor and guide the young people as they devise innovative solutions to real-world problems.
Five themes have been selected for the 2021 programme: the housing crisis; pandemics; elder care; racism; health and wellbeing.
