The Commonwealth Games legacy and promoting safer cities
Turning Point Scotland was invited to participate in a leadership programme workshop for up to 100 young people from across the Commonwealth who are living, studying or working in Scotland, called 33Sixty.
The programme forms part of a collaboration with Legacy 2014 and the Commonwealth Secretariat, and aims to develop participants’ Cultural Intelligence and leadership skills so that they can lead change now and in the future.
Participants with a range of speakers and visited hosts to explore leadership and the challenge which runs throughout the programme: “What can our generation of the Commonwealth do now to make our cities more inclusive and safe by 2030?”
The participants spent two days exploring the challenge through visiting organisations across the city and hearing from external contributors. In groups, they developed their own thoughts on a solution to the challenge.
Director of Operations Wendy Spencer represented TPS at the event at the University of Strathclyde and met with some of the participants and listened to their ideas for bringing about positive change.
