Peace and Conflict Resolution Panel, OYW 2014

Peace and Conflict Resolution Panel, One Young World, Dublin

I was fortunate enough to be sponsored by the OPEC Fund for International Development to attend the One Young World Summit in Dublin, and hear how two inspiring gentlemen loyalist Jackie McDonald and republican Sean Murray, who fought on opposite sides during “the Troubles”, are now working towards reconciliation and sustained dialogue in Ireland. This could not be more up my alley. Turns out, there are a lot of us young people working towards the same goal in our respective countries, and we all got the chance to say a few words about what we’d learned during our special breakout session with Jackie, Sean, and others involved in the talks. Below is a clip describing what I found most inspiring.
