A call for the Community and Voluntary sector in Northern Ireland to “get more radical and angry” was one of the many viewpoints raised at a seminar in north Belfast yesterday.
Hosted by Development Trusts Northern Ireland (DTNI) and the Building Change Trust, the event at Duncairn Arts Centre on the Antrim Road discussed Community, Social and Economic Rights.
Peter Peacock, policy director of Community Land Scotland, told the audience of the organisation’s campaign to promote and encourage the take up of community land ownership across Scotland.
Writer and community activist Paddy Logue looked at the question of social and economic rights from a Northern Ireland perspective.
