A series of conversations and creative reflections about civil society and community work: their contribution to Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland’s shared challenges and current and future collaboration on solutions.
Contributors on the podcast bridge many divides. Guests throughout the series are drawn from those active or supporting the community and voluntary sector as they explore their innovations and contributions.
Listeners will hear stories of how communities are stepping up to meet shared challenges such as out-migration from rural communities, digital poverty, youth mental health, and integration for new migrants to the Island. Voices from multiple traditions, backgrounds and identities reflect on their all-island work in social enterprise development, Covid recovery, addressing the Climate and Biodiversity crisis, and much more.
