Discussing issues raised last year, the Youth Forum recently held their first meeting of 2017. With the focus predominantly on education, the Minister for Youth, Steven Linares invited the Minister for Education, John Cortes and the acting Director of Education, Darren Grech to the forum.

The question and answer session held at the Youth Club, proved to be very informative with the group of ten young people, aged between 13 and 17, actively taking the opportunity to ask questions on education and other matters including their transport concerns.

The forum offers those aged between 13 – 19 the chance to express their concern at ministerial level and influence future policies. If you’re interested and would like to get involved in the social issues affecting young people in Gibraltar, contact Caroline Dixon on 20041948.
