Bristol Young Heroes Awards 2018

Bristol Young Heroes are young people who are changing the world for the better. Community of Purpose want to recognise them and offer the encouragement and support they need to go on and have an impact on an even bigger scale. As a result of the initiative, an award ceremony is held to recognise young people and their achievements. Categories from Environmental to Sporting Hero give the chance for individuals to be championed. Follow: #BYHA2018

We nominated our NCS participants from our South West region:

Learn by Design were delighted to be invited to nominate individuals who took part in the NCS 2018 Summer programme. Through incredible work on social action projects, working with Bristol City Council to embed environmental issues and awareness to young people across the region, the nominees below shone through in their approach.

Environmental Hero Award:

Caitlin O’Regan
Praboda Koskandawala
Thomas Gorman
Project: Bristol City Council “Clean Streets” campaign

Why we nominated: The students impressed with their passion, enthusiasm, dedication, attitude and their ability to engage and inspire others. They successfully led the team from start to finish and delivered incredible results. The project helped to raise awareness of the issue of litter amongst young people in the City whilst also highlighting to BCC young people’s social media habits and the ability to share and promote messages online.

Clarissa Leung
Project: Incredible Edible Bristol grassroots citizen-led “regeneration of the city” campaign

Why we nominated: Clarissa Leung’s contribution was exceptional to Incredible Edible Bristol and Bristol City Council’s (BCC) regeneration agenda project. Clarissa didn’t just get involved and support the project she took ownership of the impact report. She took personal responsibility for capturing the work of the team on film. She captured before shots, action material and after shots. Clarissa demonstrated ‘impact’ very simply, but very powerfully, through photography and film.
