A group of young people from Lisburn will be part of a group taking part in an initiative involving 30 young people from Krakow, Poland.
Thirty young people from South Eastern Education and Library Board youth groups will join their Polish compatriots in Ardnabannon Outdoor Education Centre, Castlewellan. They will take part in a series of joint activities to encourage the development of co-operation and inter-cultural understanding.
The Northern Irish group will be made up of 10 young people from the Protestant/Unionist tradition (from Newtownards), 10 young people from the Catholic/Nationalist tradition (from the Lecale area of Down) and 10 young people from non-traditional backgrounds (from greater Lisburn) including young people whose families have moved here from Poland.
It is hoped that our programme will send out a strong message of acceptance and accommodation of diversity.
