This walk will focus on the impact of Brexit on our understanding of border issues and political identity in Belfast, particularly for young people living in the city.

Stopping at Laganside, City Hall and a peaceline/interface, we will encourage participants to reflect on how Belfast is changing (if at all) for young people as Brexit unfolds.

This 2/3 hour walking tour led by researchers from the School of Geography and Environmental Science of Belfast's city centre, followed by lunch at Ulster's Belfast Campus.

Participants will be asked to bring their mobile phones along and use an app to exchange thoughts and ideas.

Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring an umbrella or raincoat for wet weather.
