The backdrop to this program is Northern Ireland’s stunning and fascinating beauty.
Experience the richness of both rural and urban settings, visit both Catholic and Protestant neighborhoods and discover Belfast, a city like no city in the world. Participants will gain a first-hand look at the history of the Troubles, meeting with ex-combatants, politicians and youth workers with both experiences in the conflict and peace process.
Programs focus on peace and reconciliation.
