KS3/4 Citizenship - My World, My Democracy

Description

Three inspiring stories from young people determined to get their voices heard.

Somalian born refugee Hodan Addawe, was sent alone to England for safety, education and the chance of a better life. Hodan wanted what most children would want, for her parents to be with her.

A teacher from City Academy Bristol recognised her needs and suggested she might try and campaign for their entry in the UK. Can a young child really be expected to take on central government and win?

Also in this programme, a playwright and a group of actors explore citizenship and democracy with humour, wit and intelligence; while in the last story a group of surfers challenge the way the local council and water authorities manage our natural resources.
