We are very excited to be a partner in the Youth Network for Peace Programme alongside twelve other partners from the six northern counties and border counties of the island of Ireland. As part of this programme we are leading on the campaigns and conventions project strand alongside our partners Northern Ireland Youth Forum.
Our youth led campaigns and conventions group have workshopped and identified our second campaign which is around capturing young peoples views and voices on what Brexit means to them. As part of this group young people from our group developed a worksheet which they entitled “The Young Peoples White Paper”. On the worksheet we posed three questions for youth leaders to workshop with young people around Brexit. These where What We Know, What We Think and What We Want.
These worksheets where circulated to clubs and projects in the border counties and northern counties of the island of Ireland.
How to get involved:
If you are a young person in Northern Ireland or one of the six border counties and want to get involved in this social media campaign around Brexit. Go to our Facebook page here and share your views under each of the worksheets we post. We will be compiling all feedback in the new year.
