You-th Making Local Government work

Actively promoting engagement at local government level

Navigating and engaging with the socio-political environment is an ongoing intention of the ACTIVATE! programme and  we continue to promote the work of the many inspiring  Activators who vigorously engage with local government.

The examples of their engagements are many from the young man who persuaded the mayor and local council staff to walk barefoot through the town in support of  his shoes for school campaign;  to Activators registering as observers in the August 2016 election;  to Activate members standing for election as local councilors.
