Investment Area

Prior to the funding call to the new PEACEPLUS Programme opening, the SEUPB held a pre-application support workshop under Theme 3: Empowering and Investing in Our Young People. An indicative budget allocation has been set at €51 million for this Investment Area.


Overview of Investment 3.1

The key objective of Investment Area 3.1 Shared Learning Together Education Programme (formal education) is to ‘provide direct, sustained contact between children from all backgrounds through collaboration between and within schools, early years settings and youth organisations, to promote good relations and enhance children’s skills to contribute to a cohesive society.’

It will result in an increase in the number of children (pre-school, primary and second level and those engaging with youth services), teachers, principals, practitioners and youth workers engaged in sustained partnerships with those from different community, socio-economic, cultural and political backgrounds in a manner which will contribute to the attitudinal and behavioural change within schools and the wider community required to build a more peaceful, prosperous and cohesive Programme Area.

An indicative budget allocation has been set at €51 million for this Investment Area.
