I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the lovely weather (while making sure to stay safe)!! As you will have seen from previous editions, some of the EuroPeers have been involved in a project called Youth4Europe.
I’ve been fortunate enough to take part in 3 of the online talks:
The first was with Niklas Nienass, a German MEP, where we discussed the proposal I helped to create during a youth exchange in Spain last year. Then I joined as a guest for Norry Ascroft’s talk on the Truth Against Bullying, a book he has created for education providers in the UK to reduce bullying and mental health issues that young people face.
Lastly with Leigh Middleton, the CEO of the National Youth Agency, who spoke about youth work in England.
All of the talks were extremely inspiring and gave me reassurance when thinking about my future in these uncertain times. I would highly recommend going on the Youth4Europe Facebook page and having a look at the plethora of interviews on there. At least one will inspire you!!!
Now the talks have come to a close. So the organisers of the project hosted an awards ceremony, on Zoom of course! It was a great close to this chapter of Youth4Europe; full of laughs and heartwarming comments and it made me realise how lucky I am to have been a part of it.
Now all that is left is to look forward to the final meeting in Brussels this October!!!
