Broxtowe’s youth Mayor appeared at an international conference in Singapore.

Tilly Stone represented Broxtowe Youth Council at the International Conference on Geographies of Children, Young People and Families to talk about youth engagement in our borough.

The conference, held every year, features presentations on young peoples’ issues such as citizenship and youth participation and engagement.

Tilly was invited to present the achievements of the youth council and has been busy raising the £2,000 required to fund the trip.

Members of the youth council, typically aged between 13 and 21, also work on projects focusing on single issues affecting young people in the borough, such as alcohol misuse and sexual health,
