To coincide with the 20-year anniversary of the signing of the Good Friday Agreement – or Belfast Agreement – One Small Step is calling one people across Northern Ireland to share the small steps they have taken, or promise to take, to create a shared future and #MakeThisPlaceWork.
Northern Ireland, the North of Ireland, this place, has come a long way in that time in the pursuit of peace and reconciliation, but we still have a way to go to nurture a genuinely shared society.
The aim of One Small Step is to encourage the people of Northern Ireland, and those across the island of Ireland, to promote a genuinely shared future by building constructive relationships which benefit us all.
#MakeThisPlaceWork is an effort to recognise that people and groups work day-by-day at grassroots levels, each taking their own small steps to assist reconciliation and break down barriers in their communities.
How you can take part
We would love you to take part and it’s very simple to do so!
All we need is for you to record a 30-second video with your response to this question: “Northern Ireland has made many strides forward over the past 20 years. What small step can you take to create a shared future?”
Then email your video to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what your Twitter handle is so we can use it.
We hope to hear from as diverse a range of people as possible and we plan to share a selection of the videos we receive on the One Small Step social media channels and website. So please free to retweet, tag others to get them to take part and use the hashtag #MakeThisPlaceWork.
We’d just ask that, as the One Small Step campaign aims to be a positive and inclusive one, moving society forward, that you’d bear this in mind when taking part.
