Event description
Join us for a policy round table ‘think in’ on the topic ‘Where to next for Reconciliation in Youth Work’ within a Northern Irish context.

About this Event

Envisioning a future to which all can aspire is integral to building a peaceful and thriving society.

However, with the current political impasse and lack of a Northern Ireland Executive, as well as with the current Brexit negotiations taking place, the society is standing at a crossroad of an uncertain future. This has the potential to negatively impact on building the confidence of young people to deal with the legacy of the past and build their hope for the future.

As Northern Ireland / the North of Ireland continues to deal with the legacy of the Troubles, and in the interests of building a shared and peaceful future in which all the members of the society can flourish, there is a need to keep a spotlight on reconciliation within the youth work sector and explore the question of where to next for the reconciliation.

Join us for a policy round table ‘think in’ on the topic ‘Where to next for Reconciliation in Youth Work’.

Keynote speakers include Gráinne Kelly and Prof. Brandon Hamber who have contributed to a definition of reconciliation that is widely used in Northern Ireland today. Gráinne is also the co-author of the '2018 Northern Ireland Peace Monitoring Report'.

This is a Good Relations Week event in partnership with Youth Link and Youth Action. A light lunch will be provided, please email sophie@youthlink.org.uk to notify of any dietary requirements.
