It is right to say that Derry, more than any other location in Northern Ireland, has shown particular enthusiasm for this.  It is probably the most advanced in seeking to become a WorldHost destination.  Indeed, it has submitted an application in that regard.

It is also worth noting that the pilot for working with schools is taking place in the north-west.  Around 500 young people have gone through it.  As for the city overall, well in excess of 1,000 people have gone through the training in that part of the world.  That is a major statement of intent to ensure that the City of Culture is a major success this year and has a long-lasting legacy for the north-west.
