‘Y-HIDE?’ is for young adults – especially teenagers who could be registering to vote for the first time.

Community Relations within Derry City Council and Limavady Borough Council have worked together with local schools to create it. It sets out information on politics, voting, political parties and opinions from a range of perspectives.

Hopefully it will encourage local young people in the North West to think about their own views and make informed choices on voting.

Any resource on political opinion in Northern Ireland will be read differently by people with different political opinions.

‘Y-HIDE?’ hopes
to reflect fairly the very wide range of opinion that exists locally and also not become so ‘politically correct’ that it avoids the real and difficult issues that a society moving from conflict to lasting peace has.

It is only a starting point. Use your own initiative if you want to find out more!
What does ‘Y HIDE?’ stand for?

In ‘Y-HIDE?’ the ‘Y’ stands for Youth; the ‘H’ stands for History; the ‘I’ stands for Identity; ‘D’ for Democracy; and ‘E’ for Equality.


Given the past conflict in Northern Ireland, some people used to say ‘Don’t talk about religion or politics!’ Another opinion is that our society has changed a lot in the current generation.
Maybe ‘hiding’ identities or political views is less relevant
or may slow progress to a society where different political views can be heard, respected or challenged in peaceful democratic ways. In other words, “Why hide” your opinions?

‘Y-HIDE?’ looks at the four topics of History, Identity, Democracy and Equality in a way which is relevant to people who live in the North West around Derry~Londonderry and Limavady.
