Thanks to the Ray D’Arcy show for covering the launch week of #ChangeX100

Last week we launched ChangeX100, a challenge for everyone in Ireland who cares about local communities:

Be one of 100 changemakers who start a community project with ChangeX in the next 100 days.

Throughout the week, the Ray D’Arcy show on RTE helped us to get the word out and introduced some of the ideas on ChangeX that people can start in their local communities. Thanks again to the team at the Ray D’Arcy show for dedicating the week to wellbeing in local communities and thanks to all the social entrepreneurs and local changemakers who came to Dublin to talk about how they started their Men’s Sheds, GIY groups or Siel Bleu classes.

Here you can listen to them all again:

Day 1 with ChangeX founder Paul O’Hara, Sam Bishop the co-founder of Street Feast and Pierce McLaughlin from the Irish Men’s Shed

Day 2 with Claire O’Brien who started a GIY group and John Kearney, the founder of Irish Community Rapid Response

Day 3 with Paul Knox who got Playworks up and running at his school and Giustina Mizzoni from the CoderDojo foundation.

Day 4 with Mairead Horkan who started a Fàilte Isteach group in her community in Castlebar and Andrew McBride who is working as a trainer with Siel Bleu.
