The Across the Lines programme makes and supports purposeful efforts to collaborate and engage on an inclusive basis across north Leitrim and with neighbouring Fermanagh. Building on previous cross-community and cross-border experiences and from a positive community dynamic, the programme seeks to further develop awareness of diversity on a collective and collaborative basis. Capacity building activities will take the form of discussion/conversational events, workshops and practical joint training – open to all partner organisations.
An Across the Lines steering group will also be set up to guide overall engagement and direction of travel of the programme. A number of larger Across the Lines Forum events along side training will be scheduled throughout the two years; the aim of which is to deepen civic engagement and leadership around inclusivity, peace-building, cross border working and collaboration.
