Coronavirus: sadly but inevitably in the circumstances, our events between March and the end of June have been postponed. The 2020 Young Local Authority of the Year (fully booked) will now be held from 13th to 15th October and the Young England and Wales Programme scheduled for June will now take place from 19th to 22nd January 2021 – Click here for brochure and booking form.
Two new events have just been announced for November: the 2020 Young Scotland Programme (3rd to 6th) and the second Young Ireland Programme of 2020 (24th to 26th). Watch this space for more information about both.
2020 started so well! The first Young Ireland Programme of the year ran simultaneously with the Young Scotland and Northern Ireland Programme in January. On the final evening, the title Ireland Young Thinker of the Year went to Catherine Power (Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government) and Barbara Monahan (Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection) took the runner-up award. The Scotland and Northern Ireland title went to Mathias Kupiec (Virgin Money UK). Luke Driscoll (Student Awards Agency Scotland) was runner-up. Click here for photos.
The last week in February saw us off to Lancaster for the first Young England and Wales Programme of 2020. Ciara Hogan of CAFOD was named England and Wales Young Thinker of the Year, Isabella Lowenthal-Isaacs of ActionAid UK was runner-up, a delegate from the National Crime Agency was highly commended, and Rhyanna Bunniss of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award was commended.
