The One Small Step Campaign believes that the future of Northern Ireland is a shared one with all people being treated with trust, understanding and respect.
In an ad which will be shown on TV from 31 January people will be encouraged to play their own part in securing a better shared future by consciously taking small steps to break down the barriers of misunderstanding, hatred and distrust that is holding Northern Ireland back.

“They hope that people will decide what small steps are appropriate for them and take action. For example, someone who has rarely interacted with members of 'the other community' could do something as small as reading a little bit about another tradition or reading a newspaper from 'the other side'. This would be a significant step relevant to them individually”.
“Someone else may decide they are in a position to go a bit further and could perhaps go to a religious service of another tradition to broaden their knowledge, or engage in some kind of community relations work. Everyone can and should do something which will make a difference in the context of a collective effort”.
