Derry is hosting a two-day conference examining the issue of peacebuilding.

The ‘Hope Beyond Hurt’ conference, which has attracted a range of international speakers, is part of a wider project that will culminate this summer with the opening of the City Centre Garden of Reflection, a major new shared-space for community relations and cross-border relationship building in the centre of Derry.

Almost 100 conference delegates are discussing issues such as international conflict and peace & reconciliation with speakers who have witnessed recent conflicts.

Funding has been provided through the European Union’s PEACE III Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body, and is a partnership between Inner City Trust, which is the Lead Partner, Derry City Council and DiverseCity Community Partnership.
