Concern Debates winners 2017, Laura Walsh, Maebh McCarthy and Natasha Sutton, travelled to Italy last week for a youth conference in L’Aquila which focused on the Sustainable Development Goals. L’Aquila was hit by a devastating earthquake in 2009 and is still recovering. The aim of the conference was the rebuilding of L’Aquila with a focus on sustainability. The girls presented on their experience as Concern Debate winners and using their platform to advocate for the Sustainable Development Goals. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learnt loads from experience. They also enjoyed a day of sightseeing in Rome!
