San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Are you young and passionate about your neighbourhood and want to get your voice heard, we want you to join us at The Big Talk.
MPs, business leaders, youth organisations and journalists will be participating in discussions on knife/youth crime in London.
Live rap artists will summarise the dialogue and graffiti artists will also capture the themes on a live canvas.
Sophie Linden, London's Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime (DMPC)
Guidelines to the dialogue
The dialogue will be made up of 3 circles, the Outer circle: where participants will discuss the three questions on social media, using #BigTalk01.
The Middle circle: observes the discussion and the Inner circle: participants sit and share their views once they have made their points, others can tap them on the shoulder and get them to leave so that other people can have their say.
The only rule is you must enter the inner circle before you talk.
The Big Questions
‘Why do young people carry or use knives’
‘What more can be done to reduce knife crime in London’
‘How can community engagement reduce knife crime’
