JOIN THE HERITAGE FOR ACTION DAY ON 18TH FEBRUARY AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Students are invited to join the group, 1020 Voice for Heritage, to co-design your own youth social action. At this free event in Coventry, you will have the opportunity to visit and explore historic buildings, document your experiences and have your voice heard about what young people want from these places! You can learn digital skills, film your experiences and co-design your own activities with other young people.
The day is open to anyone aged 10-20 in England and the organisers can help students and a parent/guardian with travel to Coventry and accommodation costs up to £200.This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to meet, explore historic buildings while doing activities and discuss what they want to do to have an impact.
What will the event be like?
On 18th February, we will meet in Coventry, visit the City Gates, Drapers’ Hall and the Anglican Chapel at London Road Cemetery. The activities at the different sites will be co-designed by you.

Together, you will decide on your own social action to have an impact.
