With this mind, I want to congratulate our partners in the local authorities who devised over 31 great events for 14-18 year olds. Also, I'm delighted that Cruinni na n g will feature events across the four corners of the island building on the inaugural all-island programming in 2023. In the spirit of the Shared Island initiative, we continue to promote cross-community creative opportunities for children young people to engage in creative activities while building new relationships and bringing communities together
