Launch of social issues education website for young people

Eamon Gilmore, Labour Party leader, on behalf of The Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice, has this week launched a new online education initiative designed to engage young people in some of the critical social issues facing Ireland today, such as human rights, poverty, inequality, homelessness and crime.

Why Care? (www.whycare.ie ) is a web-based resource produced by The Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice which aims to encourage informed debate among young people by promoting an understanding of social issues. The website uses a variety of audio and video clips, articles, class activity plans and links to relevant organisations.
