Time & Location

Peel Room, Bury Town Hall, Knowsley Place, Knowsley St, Bury BL9 0ST, UK
About the event
We will address key questions including:
- How has the disproportionate effect of COVID-19 on minoritised communities affected young people?
- How should we respond to the huge increase in mental health issues amongst young people?
- What can young people do to build their, and their peers', resilience going forward?
The format for dialogues is a conversation and not a debate. People can share personal experiences and opinions. When we disagree we do so with respect. This is about listening and sharing.
All discourse should be undertaken in a spirit of understanding, hearing others – an antidote to ‘fake news’ and conflict-speak.
