Twenty-year-old Treasa Cadogan dreams of returning home to Cape Clear Island off the most southerly coast of Ireland, but jobs are scarce, and with a population of just 130 people, it is vulnerable to losing its school and other services.

This episode was recorded at the 2019 Rural Youth Project Ideas Festival at Wiston Lodge, Lanarkshire. The festival brought together 50 young people from across Scotland, the UK and beyond to share ideas, network, develop new skills and discuss how to make life better for themselves and their peers.
