Wirral youth choose to talk about respect
12:12pm Monday 14th October 2013 in News
WIRRAL'S young people have chosen 'Respect' as the theme of a special conference this week.
Every year Wirral Council gives the youth of the borough the chance to quiz senior people from public life such as the police, public health, local authority and the press at a question-and-answer forum.
In the run-up to tomorrow's conference at Wallasey town hall, youth groups were consulted about the issues they wanted to discuss. Most chosen respect as the theme they wanted to debate.
Wirral Youth Theatre will be involved in the event along with schools and youth groups, presenting dance and drama to link with discussions.
Cllr Tony Smith, Wirral's cabinet member for children and family services, said:
"Young people have played a central part in planning this event, and I am particularly looking forward to seeing the outcome of the ‘hot seat’ event.
"In the past, there have been some lively debates as the young people hold councillors and officers to account on issues that are important to them.
"I hope this year's event will be as thought-provoking and as useful as previous conferences have been."
