Our FREE programme of documentary-making training workshops offered a diverse group of young people a unique opportunity to get involved in documentary-making.

great northern youth voices was a citizen journalism project providing documentary-making training for young people currently Not in Employment, Education or Training.

In December 2014 great northern youth voices won an an outstanding flagship project award from United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS).

great northern youth voices is a citizen journalism project providing documentary-making training for young people currently Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET). It is a project for the YouTube generation focused on giving a voice to young people.

Participants are encouraged to formulate their own thoughts social and environmental issues through exposure to expert and lay opinion and knowledge. Critical reflection on what part their generation may play in ensuring a better future is a key element of the process. A series of documentaries capturing the reflections of participants and those in their communities on the realities they face will be produced, given a public première and published online.

The project was developed by The Great Debate in partnership with North East Centre for Transformative Education and Research (NECTER), a network recognised by the United Nations as a Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) in Education for Sustainable Development that brings people together in partnership at the regional level to promote better access to quality education, social justice, and an improved quality of life.

Workshops facilitated by
Caspar Hewett, Director, The Great Debate
Jackie Scollen, The Great Debate film-maker in residence
Charlie Winstanley, Secretary, The Great Debate

History

great northern youth voices was built on the success of the experimental Living in a Changing World documentary-making project for young people not in employment, education or ` training, held in 2010 and our 2009 workshop Don't Shout at the Telly North East.

In 2011 The Great Debate won a successful bid to Big Lottery Fund's Awards for All scheme in 2011 which provided the funds for professional quality film-making kit and a series of pilot workshops. This project established a film-production team and made a series of short documentaries. At the close of 2011 we obtained follow-on funds from The Dulverton Trust which enabled us to continue to offer film workshops to disadvantaged young people into early 2012. Thanks to NECTER our team were able to continue to provide training workshops through the HYPODS project, which ran from March to September 2013. A further grant from Big Lottery Fund allowed us to resume our programme in 2014. While the programm is currently on hold we hope to resume this programme soon - watch this space for dates and details.
