An introduction to OTR's Youth Forum

“Hello, we are the BaNES Youth Forum! Our aim is to champion the voice of young people and campaign to make a difference for them. For example, we are currently working alongside the young homeless charity, Night Stop https://www.nightstop.org.uk/nightstop/nightstop-bath

We have previously campaigned for better Mental Health support for young people, transport and participated in consultation with different sectors of the council.

We are a group of 5-10 young people from a variety of backgrounds and schools who meet every other Monday at 17.15 - 19.15 here at OTR - bath city centre. We will use this blog to keep you updated on what we are up to and any events we have coming up.”

Climate change strike @ Bath

On Friday 15th March, a climate change strike took place in Bath city centre. Many students left school to protest for a greener planet.

UK’s Environment Secretary Michael Gove has backed the protesting children saying "Dear school climate strikers, we agree.”

B&NES Deputy Member of Youth Parliament; Renee Weber explains her experience at the strike:

I just attended the climate strike in Bath centre! It was absolutely amazing! I'm so happy that people are standing together on this massive issue! We will continue to strike until our voices are heard! Let's tackle climate change! 💞🌏
