The report is based on a series of conversations with communities across the island under the banner of the iCommunity project, a joint initiative of The Wheel, the national association of charities, and NICVA.
The report identifies an ambitious programme of work for civil society stakeholders to advance on a shared island basis. It sets out a new vision for increased all-Ireland collaboration on shared challenges, including climate action, rural development, and digital connectivity and remote work.
The iCommunity project is supported by the Shared Island Unit in the Department of the Taoiseach, the Department of Foreign Affairs Reconciliation Fund, and the Northern Ireland Executive’s Department for Communities.
