The principle ethos being: 'We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily difference we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee' and 'if you train a girl, you train the world!' See more Submitted by: Toni Leigh Smith, bolton Summary A healthy cafe drop-in for young people to socialise and take part in safe leisure time. We want to add a peer education element to the drop-in as young people react more positively to ideas and suggestions from fellow young people. In this case, for example, what type of healthy smoothie to try. Also we want to give young people information and help them give up smoking. What we are asking for is to recieve funding to train youth volunteers to run the healthy youth cafe (e.g. food hygiene and nutrition courses). Also we'll need funding for equipment, room hire and nutrition experts to come in from time to time to provide support.
  7. 7. See more Submitted by: Soniqua Richard, London Summary To take music and Drama and make a serious and understandable film about hidden issues and pressures youngsters the age of 16-19 go through. Although this challenge is not a completely new idea I would love the oppotunity to direct and script a film using loads of volunteers to not only show adults what we go through and what we are capable of but to also show other teenagers that they are not alone through crisis and troubles. The movie would explore in depth and feeling what we wish to tell adults. I have been acting from the age of 11 but I notice that everone has a differnt talent, i would split volunteers up in sections of dancer, singers, rappers, actors, Camera and audio, editing, and even those who like writing to help with the scripting and organisation. See more Submitted by: Alice Louise Johnson, Cambridge Summary I want to expose the harrowing secret world that exists behind closed doors, & raise awareness about sex trafficking through theatre and performance. I will turn a house into a representation of a brothel, and include volunteer actors/actresses to tell the stories of real people that have been trafficked into this Country and held against their will. This is based on a performance like this that I have already directed for my studies, which has encouraged me to develop this further and produce this for public viewing. My idea is to guide the audience around the house, and make an „interactive‟ piece, which will help people to understand the nature of trafficking and that it can be stopped.

See more Submitted by: Anthony Boakye-Mensah, London Summary To initiate and manage a book reading initiative within local schools to help young people to read more and spend less time on the internet, social networking sites and TV. I have read books such as those in the autobiographical and self-help categories from a young age and find that it helps me to be imaginative about my life. Reading within a group setting can be very involving and engaging in helping individuals to formulate their own ideas and concepts. I believe the category of books used will help inspire, involve and cause those involved to become more creative. See more

Submitted by: Karen Sutherland , Edinburgh Summary Our project looks to inspire follow disabled young people by allowing them to explore how there disability makes them feel through the medium of photography. We are very passionate this topic and volunteering on this project will allow us to develop the skills to explore body image, sexuality, disability and society‟s perception of them in a way the differs from very commonly used method of “talking therapy” We don‟t want to just talk about the issues we want to do something practical to help young people with disabilities to feel they can be themselves and that their opinion matters.

See more Submitted by: Babatunde A.K.A. Williams, London Summary We set up a group called New Turn, a think tank. Our aim is to get in speakers/debaters/lecturers to break down key and topical issues for a young audience, allowing us to make up our minds in an environment that encourages discussion and disagreement as opposed to one that encourages a narrow mindset. At New Turn we wish to show that young people are not incapable of engaging, rather it is about time the “system” engaged with them. Therefore, we wish to publish policy papers that reflect the way young people are affected by society, ultimately better informing policy makers. See more Submitted by: Luke Flegg, Brighton Summary

In disengaged areas it is extremely challenging for young people to fully know and comprehend the steps they must take towards success. This programme hopes to solve this issue by equipping young people to pass the challenges of life, addressing topics such as communication, presentation and relationship management. Using young role models to deliver programmes makes the message trustworthy, thus inspiring the audience to fully engage in learning.

See more Submitted by: Florelle Adat, London Summary The Street Law project! We know that young people have valid opinions and can argue them as well as any Lawyer out there, so I‟m giving young people the chance to do just that. All young people deserve the chance to experience a legal career, without being told that it is too expensive or too difficult. Basic knowledge of the Law is invaluable at any age. As well as learning the Law that affects them the most and learning to form legal arguments, young people can test their legal skills in the Street Law Court‟s very own MOCK TRIALS. See more Submitted by: Ceri Denise Davies, West Midlands Summary 'More Mascots Please' which includes my special creation „Mintie‟ will hopefully have national reach and be recognisable for representing the qualities of „courage, commitment and challenges‟.

However, I had limited control over other people‟s mascots and will develop my own so I can use it to go into hospitals to entertain young people who are going through difficult times.

See more Submitted by: Liz Shepherd, Bath Summary My big idea to tackle the Big Challenge is to create a youth café central to Frome where young people aged 11-18 can go to simply hang out. It will provide a safe environment for them, keeping them off the streets, providing someone to talk to if they are in need, but most importantly a place to escape from the hustle and bustle of living in Frome and relax to live music, a game of pool, or just a chat over a glass of Coke. But get this, it will be set up and run by just us teenagers! Seeing as the adults have ignored our needs so far, let‟s set this up and prove to them we are capable of something great!

The media is powerfull medium that has been used negatively against young people especially ethnic minority youths and has instilled fear in a lot of adults.

  50. 50. Submitted by: Toni Leigh Smith Summary A healthy cafe drop-in for young people to socialise and take part in safe leisure time. We want to add a peer education element to the drop-in as young people react more positively to ideas and suggestions from fellow young people. In this case, for example, what type of healthy smoothie to try. Also we want to give young people information and help them give up smoking. What we are asking for is to recieve funding to train youth volunteers to run the healthy youth cafe (e.g. food hygiene and nutrition courses). Also we'll need funding for equipment, room hire and nutrition experts to come in from time to time to provide support.

Submitted by: Soniqua Richard Summary To take music and Drama and make a serious and understandable film about hidden issues and pressures youngsters the age of 16-19 go through. Although this challenge is not a completely new idea I would love the oppotunity to direct and script a film using loads of volunteers to not only show adults what we go through and what we are capable of but to also show other teenagers that they are not alone through crisis and troubles. The movie would explore in depth and feeling what we wish to tell adults. I have been acting from the age of 11 but I notice that everone has a differnt talent, i would split volunteers up in sections of dancer, singers, rappers, actors, Camera and audio, editing, and even those who like writing to help with the scripting and organisation.

Young people in cafe, leisure, etc. all good, but is this really what they want? A film will certainly bring out what it is they really want, in their own words! Good luck Submitted by: Alice Louise Johnson Summary I want to expose the harrowing secret world that exists behind closed doors, & raise awareness about sex trafficking through theatre and performance. I will turn a house into a representation of a brothel, and include volunteer actors/actresses to tell the stories of real people that have been trafficked into this Country and held against their will. This is based on a performance like this that I have already directed for my studies, which has encouraged me to develop this further and produce this for public viewing. My idea is to guide the audience around the house, and make an „interactive‟ piece, which will help people to understand the nature of trafficking and that it can be stopped.

This deeply underground issue cannot be given enough attention in light of the number of families and children torn apart by its activity every year. Alice is creative, inspiring and hugely passionate about people issues. I know she has put a LOT of work into this project and I can't think of anyone better and more patient to inspire others about such a global social problem.

  54. 54. Alice is dedicated to every thing she takes on - and has a brilliant inspiring mind. i was sad to miss her MA performance installation but heard from others how amazing and thought provoking it was. i have worked alongside Alice and am constantly impressed by her passion, hard work and creativity. the issues Alice explores in this particular piece of work need shouting out - they have been ignored for too long. Good luck Alice. i'm keen to experience your future work. :) 9-Aug-2010 11.46AM steven Says... i reali like this idea u gt myh vote 9-Aug-2010 10.52AM Neelam, Blandine Says... The project that you have chosen is a serious problem for many people, being able to research and make a difference would be a great achievement. There are many issues surrouding this problem and many victims don't know how or where to get help from. This too is a side of society all must/should be aware of. Alice is passionate and very creative, any opportunity given to her would certainly have a positive impact. 9-Aug-2010 9.06AM Emma Wicks Says... I think this is a great idea and would really open up the eyes of those that like to pretend we live in a perfect society where everyone is treated the same. An informative and interactive show such as this could literally help the people of real-life brothels and give them the chance that so many people take for granted. 8-Aug-2010 9.38PM clare Says... just voted for you.keep us up to date on how things go. fingers crossed 8-Aug-2010 1.11PM Rachael Says...

With Alice's unrelenting dedication, sense of creativity, and a caring disposition, this installation I am sure will capture the audience's hearts and minds, with an unforgettable visual and emotional experience whilst encompassing a very senstive topic which affects so many innocent people. This installation will be an example of genius, that's why Alice gets my vote! 7-Aug-2010 6.48PM Kieron Treacy Says... I've seen her make this show before and it was such an eye-opener. You deserve to win. 7-Aug-2010 6.20PM Geoff Fisher Says... I have worked with Alice in the past (all too infrequently) and if anyone can make this work it will be Alice!

This project has been throughly created and demostrated through a passion to expose and examine the effects of trafficking and human rights. This project is also an amazing piece of theatre and performance and many people are shocked and educated about the real effects of trafficking. However this project is sensitive and informative about the real issues that are being explored. Alice's performance is a great piece of theatre. Therefore Alice recieves my vote. 5-Aug-2010 8.32PM Aidy James Stevens Says... Alice is one of the most passionate, dedicated individuals I've had the pleasure of meeting. I'm fully behind her on this! 5-Aug-2010 8.30PM Paula Hanson Says... I was lucky enough to be part of this incredible piece. I can't express enough how much it would mean for me if Alice won this.

I think this project sounds brave and admirable, so many people are content living in their bubbles without a even glimpse of the ugly/seedy side of our society I think this will highlight some real issues that need more attention from the masses. You get my vote! 5-Aug-2010 12.27PM Mya Fekry Says... Alice's idea is not only an amazingly creative installation, but is also an excellent representation of a growing human rights issue of which this project helps raise awareness on both a national and global scale.

We will be welcoming dancers, singers, actors, poets along with providing dance classes and work shops to the build up of the show. From this inventive show we hope to encourage more young people to unit together and become one. This is to prevent the bad social aspects we have in today‟s society.

Submitted by: Anthony Boakye-Mensah Summary To initiate and manage a book reading initiative within local schools to help young people to read more and spend less time on the internet, social networking sites and TV. I have read books such as those in the autobiographical and self-help categories from a young age and find that it helps me to be imaginative about my life. Reading within a group setting can be very involving and engaging in helping individuals to formulate their own ideas and concepts. I believe the category of books used will help inspire, involve and cause those involved to become more creative. Comments on this entry 11-Aug-2010 2.53PM Isaac Frempong Says...
