Social Media Use in Irish Youth

Eurochild Children’s Council Sioda took part in the Mayo Tusla Youth Advisory Group's project on social media

In Ireland, the Mayo Tusla Youth Advisory group (part of a partnership between Tusla and Foroige), have been carrying out research with other young people from across county Mayo, as part of a project that trains young people up as researchers and equips them with skills to carry out a research project from design through to dissemination of results. 

The group of children and young people, including Sioda, a member of the new Eurochild Children’s Council, explored social media usage amongst teenagers, before presenting their findings at the UNESCO child and family research Centre 9th Biannual International Conference. 

The project is part of the UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre ‘Youth as Researchers’ programme.
