This year the British Youth Council will celebrate its 70th Anniversary, marking decades of its efforts to create social and political change for young people. Throughout the year, we will not only celebrate the stories of those who have been part of the youth voice movement, we’ll also celebrate the young people who continue to champion our vision for a better world.
Anna Rose Barker, Chair of the British Youth Council said: “The British Youth Council have been working to create social and political change for 7 decades. I’m really looking forward to sharing the stories of the young people who have been part of our movement for change. Now, more than ever, it’s imperative that young people’s voice continue to be heard”
During our anniversary, the British Youth Council will announce it’s new vision for an environment in which young people views are valued, sought and acted upon. Moving forward the British Youth Council will continue its battle to amplify young people’s voices among decision makers in the UK and abroad.
