This will offer an opportunity to showcase the diversity that can be seen even in a peninsula the size of the Inishowen Peninsula with Lough Swilly on one side and Lough Foyle on the other and the diverse socio economic demographics of the two areas.

The conference will also highlight the inter-dependency with Northern Ireland due to the geographic location and will also be looking out to other areas of the Atlantic Arc such as Newfoundland, Novia Scotia, the Islands and Highlands of Scotland and the Faroe Islands to bring an international dimension to this years conference which will encourage other potential partnerships and collaborations for Northern Periphery opportunities
