Two medical students have been named the winners of Trinity College Dublin's first ever 'jailbreak' charity event. The pair travelled over 11,000km from Trinity College to Argentina, in the space of 36 hours without spending any money on transport.The event, which captured the imagination of the nation last weekend, has raised over €14,000 for St Vincent de Paul and Amnesty International.
Civic Engagement in Trinity
In Trinity College Dublin, we have long and important tradition of outreach and community engagement. Through this type of activity Trinity remains connected with society in manifold and mutually enriching ways. Types of engagement include research and teaching partnerships, staff and student voluntary activity, and dedicated programmes to ensure access to education. Not only does this allow members of the College to give back to the community, but it also give students and staff added insight into our societal structures, issues and problems. These activities also offer student, staff and members of the wider community additional social, academic and professional learning opportunities.
