Tickets are now on sale for a panel debate with some of Birmingham's leading figures looking at issues surrounding citizenship.
The Big Citizenship Debate will be chaired by Jo Cameron from The Apprentice, who will be joined by panel members including David Clarke, chairman of The Birmingham Civic Society and Darren Walker, chairman of Birmingham Future.
The event at the NIA in Birmingham on May 26 will look at how important citizenship is to the city of Birmingham, how we support it as a business and local community and how we nurture it for the next generation.
All proceeds from the event will go to support the Birmingham Civic Society and the Next Generation Awards.
As part of the event, the Next Generation Awards’ current City Champions from King Edward VI Handsworth School will make their award-winning presentation, showcasing how they think real improvements can be made to encourage active citizenship.
The final of this year’s Next Generation Awards, which challenges the city’s schoolchildren to generate ideas on how to improve Birmingham, will be held in October.
Tickets for the debate are £15 each. For more information, email Rob Langley-Swain.
