Co-operation Ireland is a highly experienced peacebuilding organisation that has been working in Ireland, as well as across Europe, since 1979. Its mission is to "advance mutual understanding and respect by promoting practical co-operation between the people of Northern Ireland and of the Republic of Ireland." The organisation works with a number of organisations, networks, political parties, businesses, and society at large to develop events, workshops and activities that reduce conflict.
The organisation promotes peaceful approaches to conflict resolution and collaboration between communities. Through its "Pride of Place" competition, Cooperation Ireland encourages people to come together to take pride in their communities. Co-operation Ireland's youth & education projects - Artlinks and Civic-link - bring together young people from all communities, giving them the opportunity to meet and learn about other cultures.
