Hey everyone,

We have an exciting opportunity that you might be interested in getting involved in :) 

The Mix and the British Youth Council have been working alongside the government to help create better ways for young people to be involved in the development of policy. Head over to this thread to read all about the exciting work we've been doing. 

We're really interested to hear your thoughts on what digital tools would make policy interesting and accessible. This week, we'll be holding an online discussion in one of our chat rooms where you will be able to discuss your thoughts.

When will this online discussion be happening?
This will be run on Thursday 18th April 6-8pm. 

How can I sign up?
If you’re interested in taking part, complete this form and let us know which days you’re available to attend the group chat. We will send you an email in the next few days with some more information. 

Hope you can join us :) 

Aife & the team

    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Everyone is special in their own way. We make each other strong (we make each other strong.) We're not the same. We're different in a good way. Together's where we belong. We're all in this together. Once we know. That we are. We're all stars. And we see that. We're all in this together. And it shows. When we stand. Hand in hand. Make our dreams come true.

    I signed up for the workshop. I received an email yesterday saying that I will get an email today about the room and password but I haven't received my email yet. Sorry if I am seeming like a pest but I am worried that I won't receive the email on time. If @The Mix could try and find out the password could someone tell me so I can attend the workshop tonight? Thank you

    Thanks for letting me know. Hopefully it isn't weird that someone my age wants to join in with the discussion.

    I might be a little bit late as I am waiting for dinner to be ready. I'll try and definitely arrive by 6:30pm.

    Such an amazing workshop. Thank you so much Italia, Dorina and Wayne for modding and to everyone else who came. I learnt so much and got to share my opinions. 😊
