District Foundation Centenary project with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, held in the Scottish Parliament

Peace Conference: Unlocking Leadership Potential

The District Foundation Centenary project in partnership with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scotland is now reaching its final stage.

The Unlocking Leadership Potential conference will be held at the Scottish Parliament on Monday, 18th December 2017, at which the young people supported have the opportunity to showcase their projects.

This is a great opportunity to give pupils from schools in your area an opportunity to see at first hand the benefits of both the “The Peace Project” and Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme.

The conference will include:


  • Kirkcudbright Peace Advocates to lead sessions for young people
  • Separate breakout sessions for adults
  • Inspirational speakers, who will frame the breakout sessions
  • Duke of Edinburgh Peace Advocates will showcase their work, showing outcomes from the   training weekend in February
  • Coffee/tea on arrival and lunch


100 youngsters with teachers, DoE Centre Leaders and carers can be accommodated at the event. There will be no charge for these attendees.

In addition, up to 50 Rotarians can be accommodated. Rotarians attending are asked to support the event by contributing £10 to cover their lunch and coffee/tea.
