The YouthTalks zone at BlueFire Street Fest is a chance to explore the powerful role young people (16 – 30) play in our city. What causes or work are young leaders engaging in? What are our challenges in today’s society as young leaders? What have we achieved and how? How can we create a more positive environment and more opportunities for young people to thrive as leaders? We are also interested in exploring some of the barriers that stop young people becoming leaders.
