Have your say on Louth County Council’s new PEACEPLUS Action Plan 2021- 2027.

Front Page

PEACEPLUS is a new European Union funding programme designed to support peace and prosperity across Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland, building upon the work of the previous PEACE and INTERREG Programmes.

The programme recognises the importance of peace-building activity, but also of actions that contribute positively to the economy, building prosperity and adjusting to the new environment and challenges we face. 

This project will be funded by the European Union’s PEACEPLUS Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body. 

County Louth has been given an indicative allocation of €4.6 million for its action plan 2021-2027.  A Louth PEACEPLUS Partnership has been established to help design the new action plan.  As part of this design process, the PEACEPLUS Partnership wants to hear your views on how this resource should be spent in Louth.

A series of public consultations workshops will commence in the week beginning 14th November 2022 and will run until the end of the month. The workshops aim to identify peacebuilding needs in the community, and to identify project ideas for the PEACEPLUS action plan.

The following target group / thematic workshops are planned: 

  • Six geographical workshops across Louth targeting groups such as community groups, tidy towns, arts, sports & culture groups, environmental groups etc.
  • Equality groups (e.g., women’s groups, members of the travelling community, LGBTQ+ groups, minority groups and age friendly groups)
  • Youth Groups
  • Groups focusing on those living with a disability
  • Ex-prisoner groups
  • Minority Faith groups
  • Groups representing Ukrainians in Louth

 This is your opportunity to influence the content of the new action plan.  We would really like to hear your opinion, so please come along to one of the workshops.  The list of dates and times can be found at https://www.louthcoco.ie/en/services/economic-development/peaceplus/public-consultation-2022/public-consultation-schedule-2022.html
