Brexit, Borders and Belfast: A Walking Tour for Young People

My local area theme

What’s on offer?

A 2/3 hour walking tour led by researchers from the School of Geography and Environmental Science of Belfast's city centre, followed by lunch at Ulster's Belfast Campus. Participants will be asked to bring their mobile phones along and use an app to exchange thoughts and ideas.

Stopping at Laganside, City Hall and a peaceline/interface, we will encourage participants to reflect on how Belfast is changing (if at all) for young people as Brexit unfolds.
