Description

mazing 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. The project enables young people to contribute to a more peaceful society, acknowledging that they can be key agents of change in their communities.  

In last year's project 409 schools submitted Peace Pledges articulating young people's aspirations for a more peaceful society for themselves and their peers. These pledges were from both local and international schools around the world.  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.
