our Bristol, our world youth event
Youth Ambassadors were given the challenge of organising an event which empowers young people in their community. Our 2019 event, Our Bristol, Our World was all about giving young people from across Bristol a voice, so they could tell city leaders what they want the future of our city to look like.
You can see some of the event highlights below!
