“It’s been a fantastic event. We would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to take part. Let’s get talking. Let’s get safer streets for women and girls!”
“The fact that this is creative, and the kids are consenting to go to it really helps. It definitely makes the difficult subjects easier to talk about.”
“It has been a superb competition and has really helped us to promote our anti-bullying agenda, as well as giving our pupils the opportunity to be creative with tech!”
“Students have a real fascination with issues that affect society and a real moral sense of justice. This allowed them to participate in educating others because they’ve got something to share and their voices that need to be heard.”
“The assemblies were pitched at just the right level – the facilitators worked well and engaged with the students in the workshop in the afternoon and they got the best out of the kids! Happy to do more sessions when/if this kind of product continues.”
“Having now visited a number of the schools, I was really impressed with the engagement, and I know that the impact has been really positive.”
“What I particularly like is the impact the project had. By sharing with the wider community many thousands of people can listen to this important message.”
“It’s amazing to have a group of students involved in communicating such a powerful message and I think the response will be great because it’s made by students, for students.”
“I was amazed by the creative work the young people came up with. The project has been a great success and we will continue to use the materials when talking to other CYPs as well as parents, carers and professionals.”
“To have the clean air message delivered in so many creative ways by some fantastic radio and video ads made by our young people is very impressive.”
“The students have LOVED taking part and learning about an issue that is affecting many young people across the country. They now feel passionate about making a positive change to their local community. The resources have been great and really engaging.”
“Excellent workshop. Students were really engaged and contributed throughout the sessions. Pace was just right, and the content was impactful. The facilitators were approachable, and the students really got on board.”
On behalf of all of the team I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your amazing facilitators for everything, it really has been a pleasure to work with you all.
Thanks again to Collaborate Digital for reaching so many schools with our important messages, your team have been so professional with the way you have educated both pupils and teachers on such a sensitive topic. We are delighted with the quality of work you have enabled children to produce.
