Our Shared Community | T:BUC Engagement Forum January 2021

26 February 2021

People at the T:BUC Forum | NICRC

Over 200 enthusiast people attended the fully online T:BUC Engagement Forum – “Our Shared Community” which explored creative ways in which T:BUC is delivered through the theme of shared community.

The event was held on Tuesday 19 January 2021 and was organised by the Community Relations Council (CRC) on behalf of The Executive Office (TEO).


Our Shared Community

Our Shared Community aims to create a community where division does not restrict the life opportunities of individuals and where all areas are open and accessible to everyone.

The T:BUC Engagement Forum is an important opportunity to hear from people and organisations involved in the delivery of the T:BUC (Together: Building a United Community) strategy.

TEO Junior Ministers Declan Kearney and Gordon Lyons were in attendance, and the event was hosted by Dr Mark Browne of The Executive Office
