Breckland youngsters challenge stereotypes
Breckland Youth Council is launching a new campaign challenging social stereotypes.
The YESS ('Young People Engaging to Stop Stereotypes') campaign will work to break down barriers between young and older people in the district.
Covering a variety of areas such as anti-social behaviour, youth activities and social inclusion, the young politicians hope to change people's attitudes and bring communities together.
As a starting point, the youth councillor have designed a questionnaire to find out more about the stereotypes that may be held by different generations, their concerns about their neighbourhoods, their experience of anti-social behaviour and their thoughts on whether the media has influenced perceptions.
Adrian Stasiak, executive member for communities at Breckland Council, said: 'This is a very worthwhile campaign and I am impressed that the youth council has started off by investigating the issue thoroughly, to find out more about what stereotypes currently exist.
'The results will be very useful in helping the Youth Council to plan their campaign, so I hope that our residents will spare a few minutes to complete this short survey'.
