We would like to congratulate the Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed on the announcement of their winning the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize. This is wonderful news for a very deserved winner who has worked tirelessly for peace and international cooperation for his country.
NICIE were both thrilled and humbled to have been nominated. We would like to pass on our sincere thanks to those who took time and consideration in officially nominating us. From the list of confirmed nominations we were included with some fantastic organisations and individuals, each well-deserved nominees in their own right. Whilst winning would have been fantastic, the nomination acknowledges the dedication and great effort of so many incredible people over the last 38 years in the development of Integrated Education in Northern Ireland. For that alone we are tremendously grateful.
The nomination has in itself given Integrated Education even greater visibility in and beyond NI. A fantastic platform to continue to promote and build a better future for young people from all backgrounds, beliefs and traditions through education.
