Should I Stay or Should I Go?
Seismic changes forced by Brexit, COVID-19 and technological innovations are shaping Northern Ireland beyond recognition. At the same time, much of NI’s political and societal divisions remain stagnant. An emerging generation, often due to economic and career motivations, choose to study, work and live elsewhere.
As the world reopens, how do we prevent Northern Ireland becoming a stepping stone? As geographic location becomes less linked to employment opportunities, how can we persuade our people to stay and attract newcomers? As we navigate post-Brexit political and practical realities, how can our political and civil society leaders build a truly shared future?
Join Northern Slant and a panel of commentators as we consider how, together, we can make Northern Ireland a more attractive and inclusive place for everyone.
