Social Action

Social Action Project

Theme: Education

Working alongside the StreetReach project, our Social Action group looked at topics including, Active Citizenship, Our Role in the Community and how we can make lasting positive change. The project worked towards planning a local social action  project that would encourage young people to get more involved within their town.

Social Action Project – Carrickfergus Skatepark Cleanup

The group discussed and identified areas of need and opportunity and finally decided on a litter pick and cleanup at the local skatepark – where there had been recent issues around litter and anti social behaviour. The aim of the project was to showcase the positive role of youth within the local community and to engage with others. Refreshments and snacks where provided for everyone involved.

Daniel Ritchie created this short video to help capture some of the event.
