I’m preparing a talk for next week and thought I’d open up the proposal to all of you! After all, I definitely believe that the community is far smarter than me – and really appreciate any and all ideas you have to share!
Next week I will be speaking at and event Bebo is facilitating for members of Number 10 Downing St, local Councils, civic departments (police, etc.), social agencies and nonprofits, and so on focused on creating an integrated No to Knives campaign. This campaign is targeting youth at-risk of knife crime in the UK and plans to have a large portion of the messaging and calls to action embedded within social media tools/platforms used by local youth.
There are a few other speakers who will be presenting their ideas or personal case studies for this kind of campaigning.
I will be speaking last: tying together the previous speeches, and highlighting key case studies that show how young people have been empowered to shape the future they are a part of.
If you have case studies, either from the organization you are a part of or that you have come across outside of your organization’s work, please do share them! I have a growing list already but am looking to cover some unique and compelling stories for this integral speaking opportunity to influence a major campaign.
Please note: I will credit any and all contributions, of course. I will also share my speech and slides next week after the event.
Thanks in advance for your ideas and contributions!
