Youth Led Session – the outputs from the 2021vSRP Session on 6th March 2021
The 2021 Scottish Rural Parliament opened with a Youth-Led session which gave young people from across rural and island Scotland the opportunity to take part in a strength based visioning exercise and then communicate those visions to decision makers.
During the session, the young people created videos around their vision for their communities in 2025 along themes chosen by them, which were:
- Mental Health
- Good Food
- Climate Change
Decision makers then responded to the visions, which was followed by a question-and-answer session chaired by Rebecca Dawes from the Rural Youth Project.
- Maree Todd MSP, Minister for Children and Young People
- Bruce Adamson, Children and Young People’s Commissioner
- Donald Mackinnon, Scottish Crofting Federation
- Mollie McGoran, MSYP for Caithness, Sutherland and Ross
