First Day - Buzz in the Skatepaerk
Our stint in the skatepark created an incredible buzz. The kids expressed there wishes and concerns. We threw in the idea of creating a competition and a few kids seemed keen enough on it. We were interested in seeing if we could enable them to organise it themselves. It didn't work out, but I think it has potential. We also posed the idea of creating a youth comission of the local kids to get them to talk directly to the City Council, but we realised we needed to put more thought into the idea and provide them with a communication link for them to contact us, rather than us getting their personal details. This is something we need to build on.
