Steering Group Exchange

In July and August, two of our Steering Group were involved in an Intercultural Youth Exchange called “Crossing Borders” – run by Hostelling International NI in partnership with DJH.

The project allowed them to work with 8 other young people from Northern Ireland and 10 young people from Germany, all aged 16-18 years. The first leg of the exchange took place in Northern Ireland, with the second leg taking place in Berlin, Germany.

Themes explored in the project included the connection of both Berlin and Belfast being cities that have experienced – or still experience – division by walls as well as the impact of conflict on young people.
