The Teesside University Generation Brexit project

Background

The Teesside University Generation Brexit project is developing opportunities for young people ages 14-26 to engage in a series of events which explore their ‘hopes, fears and aspirations’ in relation to Brexit – the UK decision to leave the EU. It will provide opportunities for them to learn more about what Brexit means and engage in activities which allow them to share their ideas and opinions with policy makers. The overall aim of the project is to allow them to imagine the possibilities and opportunities a post-Brexit Britain might generate. 

Seeking your help and involvement

There are a number of ways that you can become involved – we are currently looking for: 

  • Local youth workers and youth organisations to be part of the Practitioner Steering Group 
  • Local politicians and policy makers to become part of the project’s work through involvement in interviews, workshops and podcasts. 
  • Young people ages 14-26 to be part of the project as members of the Youth Advisory Board – which meets monthly to help run and manage the project – or through generating creative content and skills such as: writing blogs/articles; video making; events and workshops; web content management; podcasts etc 

There will be a series of interactive and fun events planned during 2021 which will be interested to young people across Teesside and I would be grateful if you would be involved and help us promote the project.  

Interested?
