challenges ni


Challenges NI is an exciting media project which acts as a platform for young voices and

fresh ideas from across Northern Ireland and beyond.

Through our live events, blog and other digital media, we aim to challenge the preconception

that young people are apathetic about political issues.

Non-partisan and non-profit, we provide a refreshing and engaging source of

commentary and opinion.

Challenges NI was founded in 2015 by Thomas Copeland and Jack O'Dwyer-Henry, whilst they were still at school.

The Challenges NI website was launched in 2017 by its Editor, Thomas Copeland.
