YAS member Andrew Timming is running a workshop on "The (Potential) Benefits of Employee Voice" at the Scottish Universities Insight Institute at Strathclyde University as part of their Strengthening Democracy at Work and in our Communities programme. It is a knowledge transfer event, as opposed to an academic event. Participants will be discussing how employee voice benefits organisations, individuals and society. The workshop will take place on Tuesday 16 July.

Following from the success of the We-CTV project in previous years, the Scottish Youth Parliament has been working with the Scottish Government’s Community Safety Unit to roll out the project to the whole of Scotland. SYP have been working with young people across Scotland to deliver the exciting video-making project engaging young people with the topic of knife crime.  With the results of a competitive online vote in, the culmination of this work will be an awards ceremony to be held in Glasgow’s Science Centre and, as a valued supporter, YAS have been offered places at the event.

On the night, our host, Sanjeev Kohli, will preside over the premiere of the films and announce the winners, chosen by an independent judging panel and presented by Cabinet Secretary for Justice Kenny MacAskill MSP.
