The new group of young people who will form the CYC for the next year, met for a residential weekend in November. Four new members joined the group from Bristol, London and Essex.
The group spent time getting to know each other and learning to work as a team. A new chair and deputy chair were elected. The group held a Skype call with a member of the Amsterdam Youth Force to discuss how UK youth can be more involved in the run up to the International Conference next year. The CYC raised issues such as the continued use of the term 'AIDS' which for many of them has negative connotations. They plan to contribute further on this issue by getting involved in a Youth Force policy paper. The group spent half a day working on content for the young people's If Only You Knew website. They edited and re-wrote areas, as well as recording audio This will all be updated for the new year. The next CYC meeting will be in February.
