The great indoors

Keep your kids learning new skills and having fun (and avoid hearing ‘I’m bored’ every 30 seconds) all in #TheGreatIndoors.

A National Conversation on the #PowerOfYouth

Host an listening event with leaders Young people’s voices need to be heard at a local level, not just in Westminster. You should have the opportunity to raise the issues which matter to you, and to ask leaders about how you can work together to address the challenges you face, during the pandemic and in the future. We’ve worked with creative youth organisation Beatfreeks to develop a guide to holding digital listening events between young people and organisations and leaders, and are calling on people to join the national conversation. Consider getting together with your local Youth Council, an organisation you volunteer for, or with your school to host a listening event and invite your local MP. You could also consider inviting other leading local figures, such as local councillors or business leaders. Lots of small listening events can make up one big conversation on the #PowerOfYouth.
