11th November 2016 - Islwyn MP pays tribute to inspirational Youth Summit

Islwyn MP pays tribute to inspirational Youth SummitChris Evans, the Member of Parliament for Islwyn, has today paid tribute to an inspirational Youth Summit at Coleg Gwent, Crosskeys Campus, organised by the Royal Commonwealth Society.

A result of a partnership between WE Schools, Coleg Gwent and The Royal Commonwealth Society of Wales, the two-day South Wales Youth Summit encourages young people between the ages of 15 and 19 to come together and discuss democracy at a local, national and commonwealth level.

The first day was held at Coleg Gwent, Crosskeys Campus, and involved workshops run by the WE charity focussed on community activism and supporting communities overseas. Guest speakers included the local MP Chris Evans who discussed his desire to make positive change as the reason he went into politics.

Mr Evans said: ‘The South Wales Youth Summit is a fantastic opportunity for young people to come together and learn that together they can change the world.

‘The presentations made by The WE Movement and the youth homelessness charity Llamau were inspirational and really showed how if we all start thinking less about ‘me’ and more about ‘we’, and our whole communities, we can make genuine positive change not only locally but internationally.

‘I know that the young people who attended today and took part in the workshops are going to learn a great deal about how to make positive change. They are the future and I am very pleased to see they will be equipped with the tools they need to improve and take part in their communities.’
