Northern Ireland 2035 Legacy 7 October 2021

NorthernIreland2035 –Common Purpose NI Legacy Programme

 
 

Belfast City Council has been working with Common Purpose to support the Common Purpose NI Legacy Programme –NorthernIreland2035.

Background
The programme is aimed at young people aged 18–25 –a total of 100 young people will participate from across Northern Ireland, with a cohort being drawn from Belfast given our co–sponsorship of the programme.
Common Purpose are scheduling the Northern Ireland programme to take place on the 14thand 15thOctober, and 18thand 19thOctober through online sessions.The group will be diverse in nature both in terms of location and background of the participants –Council officers are working with Common Purpose to ensure the application process results in a group that reflects young people from across the city.
Given COP26 in Glasgow later this year, all ofthe Common Purpose UK Legacy programmes have a green challenge at their heart.The challenge wording is: “How do we act together to transform our community into a cleaner, greener place for all?”
Legacy outcomes include leadership learning for a diverse group of young leaders, new connections between the peer group and between the peer group and established leaders and some civic outcomes too.
The programme is based on a consortium of sponsorship made up of Belfast City Council, Belfast Met, the Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland, Belfast Charitable Trust, Allstate, and Power NI. This enables the programme to be offered free–of–charge to young people.


The sessions
Over four days –13th/14th October and 18th/19th October, the group of around 100 young people will tackle a pressing challenge our region faces. This year’s challenge is: How do we act together to transform Northern Ireland into a cleaner, greener place for all? Young people will come together online to investigate issues, collaborate, hold difficult conversations and work up ideas. They will test, refine and present their ideas to leaders in Northern Ireland.

The Application Process
The application process for NorthernIreland2035 involves answering a question which reflects your passion for leadership and your community. The question can be answered by whichever means feels most comfortable to you, be it written, video submission, a piece of artwork, song or photograph –however you best feel you can express your desire to take responsibility for the legacy of Northern Ireland.
