This team believe that too many young people don’t feel (quite rationally) safe in and around their communities. To combat the challenge, this team have developed an idea around creating a safety tracker device which young people could carry with them and use in case of emergencies/to feel safer while out and about.

They key idea this team is shining a spotlight on is the importance of young people feeling safe wherever they are and feel comfortable to go out and engage with the world, without fear.

To trial their idea, this team have decided to run a series of workshops in their school. The workshops would run across 4 weeks, and would highlight self-defence training, education around staying safe, guest speakers and strategies for how to support others.
