UpRising, a UK-wide youth leadership development charity, set up a digital activation academy for local 16-20 year olds.

The event offered young people an opportunity to learn digital and creative techniques to further a campaign for social change in their community.

Radio 1Xtra and Sky supported with skills workshops, along with local young bloggers and entrepreneurs.

A successful event bringing together young people with renowned organisations such as BBC Radio 1Xtra and Sky News. The young people were supported in creating powerful social campaigns to improve their community, and increased opportunities for their age group.

The event received a fantastic response from the client, the organisations supporting it and most importantly, the young people involved. As such, the campaign will be extended and the programme will be continuing to help young people make their voices heard.

“Working with ‘The Fair’, Big Cat Group’s Events Management company has been an absolute pleasure. The nature of the event (a free event for young people) often meant lots of flexibility and awareness of key issues facing this age group. Roxy and the team ensured that the event was dressed and set up to a standard way above our expectations (due to our budget!) which enhanced the event beyond measure.

“The Events Team were able to help us deliver a conference for young people with many moving parts and a complex workshop and registration process. Their organisational skills, patience and ability to keep a level head ensured that the event was enjoyable for us as well as the participants.”
