EVENTS: Youth Voice Roadshows (UK)

UNICEF UK will be holding three Youth Voice roadshows this year: one in Bristol on Saturday 25th of November, one in Leeds on Sunday 10th December and one in Edinburgh on Saturday 20th January. 

The Road Shows are free local events for young people aged between 11 and 18.  They are intended to engage young people in international issues that affect children?s rights and UNICEF hopes to inspire and empower them to act as young campaigners and fundraisers through a series of information and training workshops. There is a strong emphasis on peer education and on the importance of young people being heard and having influence on the issues that are important to them.  

There will also be a free buffet of international cuisine, as well as the opportunity to take part in dance and entertainment workshops.
