Preston Youth Conference


The Preston Youth Conference took place in October at Preston’s College and Moor Park pupils were in attendance along with over a hundred pupils from schools and colleges across Preston.

The conference was organised by Lancashire County Council’s “Young People’s Service” and formed part of its Lancashire Children and Young People development plan.

The aim of the conference was to collect young people’s views and opinions on a range of issues that affect their lives. Educational and interactive workshops focussed on local democracy, racism, discrimination and poverty. Some of the workshops were led by members of the Preston Youth Council, including Moor Park Year 11 pupils Marta Switon and Natalia Durak.

During the day, a quiz was held which involved answering twenty questions about the various issues being discussed at the conference. Moor Park pupil Sadia Yakub was lucky enough to be one of only three names drawn as winners of a Samsung Galaxy tablet.

The conference provided a highly effective platform for Lancashire’s youth to express their views and have their opinions heard. Well done to those Moor Park pupils who took part in this exercise in young people’s democracy.
