Community workers and locals meet to share ideas on 'Stop Poverty' campaign

Young people are coming together in Mountjoy Square in Dublin this afternoon to share ideas for ending poverty.

Community workers and local people have organised an event between 1-5pm which includes games and workshops to raise awareness of how people can make a difference in the world.

Pierre Klein from 'All Together in Dignity Ireland' said that ideas from the day will go forward as part of Ireland's input into a global 'Stop Poverty' campaign.

"We are doing two things," he said,

"We are first marking, for the first time, the European Day of Sustainable Communities, and also marking the second anniversary of the historic adoption of what we call the 17 global goals for sustainable development."
