Cost: FREE

The Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA) and The Wheel are very excited and honoured to invite you to the launch of our Shared Island, Shared Practices initiative from 10.00am to 11.30am on Monday, 6 December. We are delighted that we will have contributions from Simon Coveney TD, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Defence, and Deirdre Hargey MLA, Minister for Communities.

Communities North and South on our shared island face a range of challenges and opportunities that are best addressed together. The Shared Island, Shared Practices initiative is designed to explore and identify areas where civil society North and South can work together on crucial themes like:

  • Rural sustainability
  • Recovery from COVID-19
  • Developing the island economy
  • Digital inclusion
  • Achieving a just transition to a de-carbonised island.

There is a saying that “the future is already here – it’s just unevenly distributed”, and Shared Island, Shared Practices aims to bring together pathfinders North and South to share thinking on what’s possible when communities work together to address key 21st century challenges on a shared island basis.

The initiative is will contribute to the Irish Government’s Shared Island initiative and is jointly funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs’ Reconciliation Fund and the Department for Communities.
