Quotation of the month
|July saw the G8 Summit meeting in Scotland, the
realization that the growing levels of anger and sense of powerless among young
people in the UK has lead to suicide bombings in London. While the G8 Summit
was occurring an international J8 Summit was occurring where young people (14
to 18ish) from across the globe came together to share their vision of the
future. We are the future and, if we do our bit, we can change the world.
We are all born on the same level and we should help other people. Emma
Kerridge aged 14yrs.
There arent many outlets for young people to express their views. There is the UK youth Parliament, but it doesnt have much of a voice. Lydia Nicola aged 15yrs.
Everyone should have a voice, but young people especially because they cant vote. These issues (Global warming and Africa) matter to everyone. Katherine Richards aged 15.
