County Youth Forum – October 2019
What we discussed:
CYF members were presented with the new logo and slogan, decided on in a recent online survey. They discussed ways in which they can further promote CYF via an animation/video and how they can go about creating it.
Make Your Mark
CYF members completed the Make Your Mark ballot papers for British Youth Council. Members Dylan and Kaitlyn (MYP’s) will be counting and submitting the results October 9th.
Ryan Strong reported back on the recently published Your Voice results and videos created to demonstrate the outcomes. click here to see the results: https://www.yeps.wales/info/your-voice
CYF members discussed and shared ideas and projects that they have completed in their local areas (Schools, colleges, community forums etc.) Examples of these are listed below:
- St John’s School are cutting down on plastic by having water fountains put in place and encouraging the use of reusable bottles. Already, they are seeing positive feedback from students and staff.
- Treorchy Library are running multiple projects. Such as their ‘Open Day Project’ where they are allowing more students to access more University open days by making a website that includes reports and blogs. They also have a monthly charity fundraiser – most recently raising money for MacMillan by running a bake sale and food banks.
Equality and Diversity
CYF members were informed about a training day that will be taking place to encourage members to learn more about equality and diversity on October 28th. Sign up here.
