SJC consultancy, in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau, was commissioned by Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) to undertake an impact evaluation of EU PEACE IV-funded ‘Shared Education’. The Shared Education objective of the PEACE IV Programme is designed to create a culture of good relations amongst school children and equip them with the skills and attitudes needed to help build a more cohesive, peaceful and prosperous society.
The impact evaluation findings were launched on 15th April, at the start of a week of social media activity to share the messages around the positive impact Shared Education has had for those involved.
