Zeminar, Ireland's largest youth summit, has announced the launch of its inaugural event at the RDS in Dublin from October 11-13.

Over 30,000 young people aged 15-19 from 32 counties are expected to attend. Over three days, Zeminar will house the largest gathering of youth-focused resources in Ireland to date.

Leinster star Jamie Heaslip and former Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh were on hand to launch the event.

Zeminar will host a series of workshops, talks and activations inspired by the issues facing Generation Z.

Guest speakers will discuss a wide range of topics including sexuality, sport, technology, entrepreneurship, nutrition, wellness and bullying.

Confirmed guest speakers include Bressie, Lynn Ruane, David Gillick and Dr Rhona Mahony.

Talks from speakers will take place on the main stage, with the surrounding space split into 'mini-Zeminars' dedicated to wellness, support services, careers and extra-curricular activities.
