December 4, 2022 | 1 Comment

“We are committed to engaging directly with our young people to hear about the issues and matters that are most important to them,” said the Minister of Youth, Culture and Sport Owen Darrell in announcing a series of upcoming youth forums.

A Government spokesperson said, “Over the next few weeks, the Zone-In Youth Forums will be held at the Department of Youth and Sport’s three community centres. And Bermuda’s young people are encouraged to attend any of the forums on the specified dates to share their views, feedback and ideas with Minister Darrell.

“The dates are as follows:

  • “December 12, 2022 – Sammy Wilson Central Zone Community Centre
  • “December 19, 2022 – Eastern Zone Community Centre
  • “January 9, 2022 – Western Zone Community Centre

“All forums are from 6.00 pm – 8.00 pm.

Minister Darrell said, “One of the key aims of the National Youth Policy is to engage our young people in meaningful dialogue. So, I am keen to hear directly from our youth about the issues that are affecting them and the ideas they have for Bermuda. We believe that this exercise will assist our team in prioritizing the goals and objectives of the Policy.”

  1. Keep young people safe and protected from harm;
