Campaign: To encourage young people to stand up and have their voices heard

Young people have a voice and it’s my view that we shouldn’t be afraid to use it.

 

There have been times when I’ve found myself feeling frustrated about a decision that’s been made – perhaps by government or a local council – that affects me.

 

Rather than sit back and grumble about it, I think young people need to speak out if they want change.

 

Recently, my team and I heard that our student bus subsidy could be cut.

 

In response, we’re organising a flashmob, to raise awareness of the potential reduction in funding.

 

With the help of Fixers, we’re planning to create a film documenting our campaign.

 

By doing so, we want to show others the merits of making their views known, and their voices heard.

December 2013
Our flashmob took place on Tuesday 10th December in Norwich City Centre. Around 100 people joined us as we campaigned to save our student bus subsidy.

 

The event was filmed and with the help of Fixers we’ll use the footage to create a documentary to promote the benefits of speaking up and having your voice heard.
