WELCOME

Apologies :

SELFIE VIDEO

With the beginning of the Over To Youth summit just around the corner, there is a big push for social media outreach about the Climate Change Demonstration happening on the 8th February 2020. Andy Rudkin from Linc Communications, who has been working with OYC for the summit, has asked for the Youth Council to do a short film explaining the summit, to get people interested and involved!

CLIMATE CHANGE DEMONSTRATION TWEET

Following on from the Selfie Video, Youth Councillors were asked to promote the upcoming Climate Change Demonstration on their social media accounts, wherever they felt comfortable doing so.

PARENTS EVENING FOR NEW OYC

As we are in the current elections for Oldham Youth Council 2020, current Youth Councillors were asked to discuss what would be important to bring up in a meeting, prior to the new term of office, to parents of new Youth Councillors, to let them know the experiences and opportunities of Oldham Youth Council.

FIRST MEETING OF NEW OYC

April 1st will see the new term of office for Oldham Youth Council, and our newly elected Youth Councillors being invited in for their first meeting! Discussions were started to talk about what would be best to include this first meeting, to break the ice and to start building relationships with the new cohort.

One example was the idea of rewriting the Greatest Speech dictated by Charlie Chaplin in The Dictator, which a few Youth Councillors put their hat in the ring to attempt to rewrite the speech in a way that would inspire the new cohort of Youth Councillors.

GMYCA AND DMYP ELECTIONS

Next meeting, 19/02/20, elections will open for the two DMYP posts, and GMYCA Rep post, and Youth Councillors were notified of the position openings, the requirements before the meeting (writing a manifesto to be sent to Youth Councillors prior to the meeting and to write a speech), and had asked if any Youth Councillors were interested in going for either roles.

The GMYCA role has been opened up due to the Constitution of Oldham Youth Council, Hamra H. A. has been relieved of her role as the Greater Manchester Youth Combined Authority Rep for Oldham Youth Council due to her recent succession as the Vice Chair of OYC. Any member of the Youth Council who holds a leadership role cannot hold an officer of regional rep role.

EVENTS AND TRIPS

Dates of Events and Trips coming up were given to Youth Councillors from our Events Officer Karl H.
