What is the Children’s Commissioner’s Takeover Challenge?
Takeover is a fun, hugely successful and exciting engagement project which sees organisations across England opening their doors to children and young people to take over adult roles. It puts children and young people in decision-making positions and encourages organisations and businesses to hear their views. Children gain an insight into the adult world and organisations benefit from a fresh perspective about their work.
What are B-Town doing?
Young People took over the website and social media on 18th November! They were at Bournemouth Town Hall filming 60 second interviews with many of the staff that work at Bournemouth Borough Council to find out more about what the council does.
As part of #TakeoverChallenge Bournemouth also hosted Parliament Day. An article from the Bournemouth Echo can be read here about the event.
