Youth ambassadors rock Greenbelt

Youth Ambassadors

This was the first year that the URC Children's and Youth Work team have sent youth ambassadors to Greenbelt but we suspect it will not be the last. Eight young people aged 16 to 23 camped together under the URC Youth flag and fulfilled a challenging role, taking on shifts in the URC tent, carrying out a survey of visitors, encouraging involvement in the "Who am I?" treasure hunt,  participating in Cake and Debate (a debating activity for under 18s including cake!), gathering information and sharing their views and preparing for a year-long role promoting Greenbelt in their particular synods. 

Two tech-talented young people, Jacob Lowe and Isaac Harvey, were charged with the task of compiling a video review of the weekend and each produced a very different view of the event. Isaac's can be seen here, while Jacob's is available here. Written reviews were sent in by Amanda, Alison, Isaac, Bethany, Reuben and Joanna.
