In this episode, Peter spoke to Robin Lockhart a commonwealth Youth worker of the year and CEO of Thought Unity. He describes his work as having meaningful conversations with young people and their families about difficult challenges they can often face within their communities.
Robin recently finished filming in his local borough of Waltham Forest in London for a youth arts project called Eastside Story, which was born from Robin’s Social Enterprise, Catalyst In Communities. Eastside Story will also be screened as an episode of BBC’s Imagine documentaries in September.
They spoke about the importance of communication, connected conversations, cooperation with one another, the importance of failing and challenging the truth of the stories we tell ourselves about who we are and what is possible for us. Robin gave an eye-opening perspective on the violent gangs, fear and conflict amongst young people. Where it comes from and the role of the media. They also explored the importance of youth work and investing in young people.
