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 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 ideas.

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

The Challenges NI website was launched by its Editor, Thomas Copeland, in late 2017, as a platform for young voices from across Northern Ireland and beyond.
