The Youth Summit
TV presenter and conservationist Chris Packham CBE hosted Knowsley’s first ‘Youth Summit’ with BBC journalist Ngunan Adamu at Knowsley Leisure & Culture Park on 23 and 24 May this year.
The event was part of The Good Business Festival (TGBF) and a highlight of Knowsley’s year as the Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture.
Chris and Ngunan welcomed almost 1000 primary and secondary school pupils from across the region to discuss their views on key issues like business and climate change. The audience also heard from inspiring role models and explored the effect of business on the natural world. Themes and topics included the environment, food production, oceans and sustainability, human and animal welfare and much more.
The Youth Summit was part of the TGBF education programme and included a set of special workshops for young people delivered by partners including Dot Art, Metal, UK Youth for Nature, Liverpool World Centre, Incredible Edible, Knowsley Flower Show and the British Antarctic Survey.
