Youth Summit Live: Summary

The Youth Summit has been a great success for all those who attended, bringing together practitioners, policy makers and young people to discuss the key issues affecting the implementation of the Government’s ten-year strategy for children and young people. A wealth of ideas, debate and dialogue were generated, the most relevant of which have been captured as video interviews, podcasts, powerpoints and transcripts downloadable from this website. We will ensure it informs our work as we move forward and hope you find it valuable as well.

Signing off for Tuesday... but we'll be back with a wrap up tomorrow (erm, Thursday...)

So, the final session of the conference is happening, and we're setting down the media centre. Over the last two days there have been 100s of visitors to Youth Summit Live - and over 80 different contributions to the site. Notes from all the workshops are here, as well as comments, video interviews and more - on topics from Mosquito devices, via the idea of a national Youth Board with a Ministerial chair, right through to evaluations of the food and the fun.

Day 1 Wrap Up

What a day! The Youth Summit has been generating a wealth of information and dialogue and we've been trying to capture as much of it as possible here on You can see how quickly posts came into the site by taking a look at the Timeline. We've had blog posts from young people and adults at the event, reflecting on different parts of the event and inputting views. Plus check out the video interviews on YouTube reflecting some of the debates of the day.

A little background...

On Monday and Tuesday next week I'll be at the Youth Summit co-ordinating 'Youth Summit Live' - an online space for capturing input from the conference, and opening up the conference to a wider audience and range of inputs. The billing for the Youth Summit sets out a big challenge: The Youth Summit will herald the new era of service provision for young people with emerging priorities from the Government’s ten-year strategy for children and young people and the Comprehensive Spending Review. The event will explore the Government’s ‘youth offer’
