They now know who the head of Swansea Council is, whom their local councillor is, what ward they live in and how they can become participants in democracy now – these young people are therefore grappling with the issues Donaldson identified – ethical issues such as sustainability and social justice.
They have gained an ability to deal with these issues by becoming active citizens and in the process gained confidence in their capacity to exert influence in their own school and community. Donaldson would be proud!

They wrote to the politicians in their local ward, local authority and Welsh Assembly. The Environment Minister, Hannah Blythyn, AM wrote to the children to congratulate them on their campaign and provided lots of advice on how they could continue their journey towards plastic-free.
The children themselves decided to raise money to buy the stainless steel bottles and will hold a sponsored walk in September to raise the money.

We went to see them near the end of term to find out about the journey they had been on. Our purpose was to capture their story to investigate plastic use in their school and to help the young people show how a commitment to participatory democracy had empowered them to be activists in their own communities.

The children already use VocalEyes for Pupil Voice and these priorities now set the agenda for Student Council. Now it was a chance for the pupils to teach what they had learnt using Pupil Voice and show the parents how to log in and participate in Parent Voice.

On Tuesday the 19th of June we had a successful day at Burry Port Primary school launching VocalEyes with staff and pupils. The day started with assembly when the whole school got a chance to see the platform in action. Following this the School Council met to learn how to use the platform.
The School Council has representatives from Years 2-6, (aged 6-11) and they began by learning how to register on VocalEyes. This took a little time but as soon as everyone was signed in the fun began!Read more..

This is even more serious amongst the under-25s where fewer that half voted compared to over 75% of those over 65 (ERSC, 2014). We think attention to participatory democracy in schools could put us on a different track and bring democracy alive in Wales.

That means lots of new bikes will be appearing soon, starting with docking stations along the bay linking the two university campuses with the city centre. The amount raised was way above the goal, £100,210 (£53,178 target) which is brilliant news because...
"To win the competition we need[ed] to raise more than our target. 50% of any funds raised over and above the target will be used to make further capital investments – more bikes and docking stations – which could include more locations. The other 50% will pay for the additional running costs that will come as a result of the extra investment."
This is brilliant news for Swansea, well done Abertawe! We're looking forward to seeing more people out and about on the bikes, experiencing the joys and freedom of cycling!
