The SEUPB has launched a public consultation for the new PEACE PLUS Programme (2021-2027).
What is the PEACE PLUS Programme?
A hybrid of the PEACE and INTERREG Programmes, PEACE PLUS will continue to support activities that contribute towards a prosperous and stable society in Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland, including activities that promote peace and reconciliation and contribute to the cross border economic and territorial development of the region.
The PEACE PLUS Programme was developed through a stakeholder engagement process, which took place between December 2019 and February 2020. A total of 16 public events were held across the programme area, with over 1,000 people in attendance. Over 300 survey responses were submitted. An infographic summarising the PEACE PLUS consultation process can be found here.
