Why should you care?
Global unrest, ‘attack and defend’ politics and greater polarisation on the world stage. Brexit, the implementation of the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement and its successors, the legacy of past conflict for victims and survivors. Changing demographics, racism and marginalisation within our communities.
Our role in contributing to the development and nurturing of conditions and relationships that support peace and reconciled communities is as important now as ever. Our work over five decades has only been possible through the generosity and goodwill of the many individuals, organisations, philanthropic and government bodies that give us their support.
"Never more than today have our challenges been of such a global and momentous nature, and never more than today have the challenges and, frankly, the threats the world faces, called out for us to recognise our collective responsibilities, including those of intergenerational justice."
President of Ireland and Patron of Glencree, Michael D. Higgins, addressing the UN General Assembly, September 2019
