You are warmly invited to our community conference, organised by the Citizenship department to promote young peoples’ engagement in active citizenship and democratic participation.
The conference will explore some of the key issues that young people are concerned about, including:
- Grooming & exploitation of young people
- Online safety
- Mental health issues (including low self-esteem)
- Lack of political engagement
- Inequalities (sexism, racism, Islamophobia)
We have invited a panel of speakers to help us explore these issues and suggest positive actions we can take to improve our community. We have also invited various Lewisham councillors to listen to our young peoples’ concerns.
We very much hope you can join us!
