Open Tender | Design and Delivery of Women as Champions of Peacebuilding Training

Application deadline: Monday 25 June, noon

Politics Plus are working with NICVA and Irish Rural Link to deliver the Next Chapter project and we wish to appoint a supplier to design and deliver a ‘Women as Champions of Peacebuilding’ training module. The project is managed by the SEUPB.

The Next Chapter is a new project targeting women to develop their ideas, build communities and support the transition out of conflict. The Next Chapter aims to improve the representation of women in public and political life and contribute to a more gender-sensitive society in Northern Ireland and the border regions of the Republic of Ireland.

The project will be delivered in partnership by Politics Plus, Irish Rural Link and Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA), and is supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB). The Next Chapter will contribute to SEUPB’s overarching programme output of regional level projects that result in meaningful, purposeful and sustained contact between persons from different communities. Match funding for the project has been provided by the Department of Rural and Community Development in Ireland and the Executive Office in Northern Ireland.

The Next Chapter will include the creation of a network of people working together to support peace and reconciliation, mobilising social change in their own communities and nurturing aspirations on a shared future.

Suppliers are now invited to submit a tender for the provision of the design and delivery of a peace and reconciliation themed training opportunity. Please see “Related files” for more information:
