Working with Young People

Young people are often keen to know more about the world and to explore the links between themselves and those who live overseas. We can offer a variety of creative ideas for engaging young people: banner and kite making, composing songs, writing poetry or simply tasting Fairtrade products. We even have experience of running ‘A Strictly Fairtrade Tea Dance’.

    Community Garden Creative Work

    Neil has been working with DEAP (Dundee Employment and Aftercare Project) with young people aged 16-25 years.

    The group are working with artist Lauren Herd to develop creative pieces for the planned community garden space at Robertson Street.

    All of the work developed is based on the identified interests of the young people and the group have explored the issue of food sustainability in a fun and accessible way. They have been carving and printing with potatoes while reflecting on the fact that 52% of the vegetable grown in the UK is used by fish and chip shops!

    Working alongside a professional artist is an exciting and accessible way for young people to explore the rich context of what it means to be a global citizen.

    Within both school and community settings young people have an opportunity to produce artwork on their chosen social justice theme, which will be exhibited locally to encourage ownership and a desire to learn more. For further information on how young people can get involved contact us.

    Food Justice and Sustainability

    The One World Centre in Dundee received an £8,000 grant awarded through the Tesco Bags of Help initiative and administered by Groundwork UK working with Greenspace Scotland. This enabled a partnership approach to be developed involving the local YMCA, Grove Academy, Eastern Primary School and a professional artist.

    The One World Centre is keen to explore innovative ways to engage young people in important questions of global justice including where our food comes from, who controls the supply of food globally and why some are denied access to food.
