From Georgie and Waylon in the Council’s Youth Team …
Wellington City Council are proud to announce the details of our annual Youth Forum: ENGAGE. On Friday 1 May 2009: 9.30am – 3.30pm at the council chamber at the Town Hall, Wakefield St.
ENGAGE will give you an opportunity to:
· Learn about Wellington City Council, the draft Long Term Community Council Plan (LTCCP), how the City is planning for the next 10 years and how young people can have their voices heard
· Meet City Councillors, youth advisors and the Wellington Youth Council
· Meet and talk about the city with other young people from Wellington
They would like as many young people to be a part of this forum as possible and are keen to have a diverse range of ethnic, academic, and cultural backgrounds present.
If you are aged 12-24 and want to take part then all you need to do is contact Waylon (email@example.com) or Georgie (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Youth Team at Council by 5pm Thursday 23 April. They are totally keen to ensure that as many of you as possible are informed about how you can be involved and have a say on planning for your city. They can even help you get permission to get out of school for the day.
Oh, and food and drinks will be provided. What more do you need?
