Youth Social Action Week


The activities will take place on 22-26 October. The activities will cover four key themes, developed from the group’s 2022 manifesto. These themes are nature, transport, food and energy, and shopping and consumption.

Portfolio Holder for Environment, Councillor Helen Skinner said, ‘Youth Social Action Week is all about sharing ideas and listening to young people’s suggestions on how we can work together to tackle Climate Change.’

The week begins with orienteering on Sunday 22 October and a tour of some of the University of Nottingham’s green buildings. Over the course of the week the attendees will take on a variety of exciting activities including nature conservation, rhododendron management and a litter pick.

For the final day, attendees will enjoy a celebratory lunch and get the opportunity to meet local councillors including the Deputy Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Sue Paterson and Portfolio Holder for Environment and Climate Change, Councillor Helen Skinner.
