2020 Mayoral Hustings
Partnership for Young London is recruiting ten to twenty young people
aged between 15-24 to get involved in running and organising the 2020 London Region Mayoral Election Hustings.
This project is being funded by Trust for London
This project is being run by Partnership for Young London. The aim is to organise youth-led research and an event for the mayoral candidates of the upcoming 2020 London Mayoral Election to address young Londoners with their vision for young people. This event will be run by young people and aims to gather young people across London with varied experiences and opinions to come together and create political momentum.
Programme of Work
Approach - Young people will lead the work in a variety of ways and have the following opportunities and skills development:
As peer researchers, gathering and collating stories to illustrate the ways that young people are contributing to the city and combatting stereotypes and barriers which many young people face.
Peer to peer outreach work, researching skills, presenting, team work, leadership, marketing, social media and communications, editing content and writing a communications campaign.
As event managers, taking a lead in coordinating or contributing to the social media campaign launch events with adults who benefit from increasing their understanding of the issues being discussed;
As communication leads, becoming involved in disseminating information and the further development of the project, as well as setting up social media platforms profiling the work.
Skills Development - Young people will be supported to develop a range of skills from this work and we will bring in specialist trainers to work with them on the following:
Using social media to engage an audience i.e. vlogging and blogging,
Developing youth led campaigns
Peer research i.e. Running focus groups, designing research
