On 1st January 2017, ATD launched the “Wresinski Legacy Project”


2017 is the year of the Centenary of the Birth of Joseph Wresinski, the founder of ATD Ireland.

ATD will mark this centenary in many ways. Events, exhibitions and workshops will be organised between the 1st January and the 17 October 2017 to promote the legacy of Joseph Wresinski.

From the 1st of January 2017, a new website about Wresinski’s approach to Human Rights and poverty issues will be available on-line.  Between the 1st January and the 12th February 2017, the website will be tested by citizens all around the world!
