Messages from Lambeth’s youth

If you are a young person going to the fabulous and famous Country Show, be on the look out for other young people who will be on walkabout looking for your views on your borough.

They will be representatives of Lambeth Youth Council (LYC) and they will invite you to share your opinions on issues that are important to you and others in your age group.

You can spell out on a billboard what you think of subjects such as education, employment and democracy in Lambeth.

Each young person will be photographed with his or her billboard and their messages relayed live to the Community Youth Services marquee (in the ‘Cultivate’ area).

The initiative is inspired by The Guardian’s ‘Message for Obama’ photography project that saw thousands of internet users share their personal messages to US President Barack Obama via photos of their written messages.

Lambeth Youth Council is run for young people by young people and exists to highlight issues of concern to young people and to allow them to influence policies that affect them. It aims to make a difference through special projects and training young people to make a positive impact in the community.

The council’s biggest and ever more popular festival, the Lambeth Country Show, will once again be held in Brockwell Park on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 July. This free event is not to be missed!
