On 25July, Action4Youth will join councils and charity organisations and local business experts from across Buckinghamshire to discuss key issues that will face the new Buckinghamshire Council in the future. Speaking on behalf of the Third Sector in the county, Action4Youth’s Chief Executive Jenifer Cameron will be talking on the importance of collaboration.
The County Council have held an annual debate for a number of years. This year, the debate is a cross-council event for all councillors from District and County to hear from a number of key speakers and address members from across the councils. The event will be live streamed for the public and partner organisations to watch, with questions from both Members and a live Twitter feed for audience participation.
Questions and comments can be submitted in advance or ‘live’ during the meeting itself via the new Buckinghamshire Council Twitter site – @DeliveringBucks, using the #bucksdebate, or alternatively questions can be submitted via e-mail to shadow.buckinghamshire.gov.uk
As the voice of young people in the county, Action4Youth were asked to produce a short film which will be played during the event, with views from the next generation about topics that are important to them, setting the scene for discussions about the future of the county.
Jenifer Cameron, Chief Executive of Action4Youth explains: “I am looking forward to taking part in this years’ debate and to leading the discussion on how we can support one another and move forward together to ensure a brighter and more prosperous future for Buckinghamshire, highlighting the crucial part the third sector plays in communities and how much can be achieved if the council and the sector work together.
