1,000+ students take part in Youth Impact Summit

Event held ahead of start of Isle of Man Government Conference

More than 1,000 students have taken part in a ‘Youth Impact Summit’ today (20 September).

Government claims it gave the 16 to 18-year-olds the ‘opportunity to explore their potential, contribute their perspectives and help shape the vision for the future of the Isle of Man’.

The event was held ahead of the start of the 2023 Isle of Man Government Conference.

Deputy Chief Minister Jane Poole-Wilson told the secondary school and UCM students: “Today isn't just an event; it's a celebration of your potential, your aspirations and your capacity to create change.

“It's about embracing the challenges, exploring the opportunities and grasping them to take forward your future.”
