The Teens’ Speech

Posted by Armando Alves | 11-12-2009 00:49 | Category: Education

Barnardo’s is the biggest children’s charity in the UK, helping young people to achieve a promising future, having created The Teens’ Speech to support that effort.

Poke London created the website/blog were teenagers share their stoires, making us feel more sympathetic with their world view and not regard them as a bunch of bullies. These experiences will be edited as a short documentary to be shown on Christmas day after lunch at MySpace’s front page.



The Teens’ Speech is an open invitation to UK teenagers to address the nation this Christmas. It gives young people the chance to speak out on a range of profoundly important issues and provides the rest of us with an extraordinary opportunity to see the future through their eyes.
