Amazing the Space 2017 - 2018

Amazing the Space 2 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. 

Amazing the Space 2017-2018 was officially launched at the MAC Theatre on Thursday 7 September 2017 by His Royal Highness Prince Harry.

Last year the project saw over 409 schools submit Peace Pledges to the initiative 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 of hope and commitment towards working for a peaceful future inspired the theme of this year's Amazing the Space 2, which encourages young people to participate in Peace Pledge Projects demonstrating how they are "living out" their Peace Pledges in their local communities.
