Belfast PEACE IV

Children and Young People Conference

Future Peacebuilders – My Future of NI

Location: The MAC Belfast

Date: Tuesday 8th March

Time: 9:00am – 1:00pm

Cost: FREE

Young people play an essential role in sustaining peace, strengthening social cohesion and preventing conflict. Their work is even more relevant in the challenging times of the coronavirus pandemic.  It is important that we continue to pioneer peace and development by creating a supportive environment for the survival and development of communities by encouraging local initiatives for community developments, empowering young people in volunteerism and linking up their initiatives for peace to help increase the effectiveness of their actions.

At this conference you will hear from keynote speaker Dr. Michael McGill, Director of Young Peacebuilders.

Young Peacebuilders are devoted to helping more young people become more effective peacebuilders. Children and youth encounter many roadblocks hindering their peacebuilding potential. They work to remove these roadblocks and build bridges strengthening their peacebuilding capacity. Young Peacebuilders is an active member of the Global Partnership for Children and Youth in Peacebuilding and the UN Interagency Working Group on Youth Participation in Peacebuilding and participates in other relevant child and youth peacebuilding-related networks.

We will also hear from Conor Houston, Chair of One Young World Belfast 2023.  Belfast will be the Host City for the One Young World Summit in 2023 – a global forum for young leaders.  Belfast was announced as the destination for 2023 following a competitive Host City Bid Process, which included eight candidate cities from across five continents.  More than 2,000 young people from over 190 countries around the world are expected to take part in the 13th annual summit and Conor will present how young people in Belfast will be able to get involved with the event.

The conference will be facilitated by UTV journalist, Judith Hill and will also feature a panel discussion amongst youth representatives from Belfast on their visions of the future of Northern Ireland.
