22nd September 2023: Junior Forum at East Kent University 

Our Star’s journey to London was interrupted to visit East Kent University at Canterbury where the first Junior Forum for the Future was held in front of an audience from local colleges and schools. A Panel of 11 students gave their views and faced challenges from their colleagues in the audience, helping to set the focus on youth for following events.
