Expanding Good Relations - More Than Two Communities

Join the All-island Women's Forum as we celebrate Good Relations Week 2021!

The All-island Women's Forum provides a space for women from across the island for cross border cooperation and dialogue.

Led by the National Women’s Council (NWC), The All-island Women’s Forum aims to address underrepresentation of women and further develop women’s role in peacebuilding and civic society. Consisting of 28 members, 14 from the North and 14 from the South, the Forum aims to build sustainable North South links, provide a space for marginalized communities, and build better understanding and inter-community links.

In celebration of Good Relations Week 2021 the Forum is hosting its first public webinar 'Expanding Good Relations - More than Two Communities'

Join us for a panel discussion on the breadth of diversity across this island.
