A YOUTH LED PEACE BUILDING INITIATIVE

Amazing the Space is a youth-led peace-building initiative, funded by the Northern Ireland Executive Office that empowers young people across Northern Ireland, to become ambassadors for peace within their communities. This year’s Amazing the Space project was officially launched by His Royal Highness Prince Harry on Thursday 7 September 2017.

In last year's project at Eikon Exhibition Centre409 schools submitted Peace Pledges articulating young people's aspirations for a more peaceful society for themselves and their peers.  These messages inspired the theme of this year's Amazing the Space project, which aims to encourage young people to demonstrate how they are "living out" their Peace Pledges in their local communities.
