HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2010 year of the Tiger and we are already roaaaaring into action!

So... we have already been back in our BYC den at London Bridge for just over a week after a lovely Christmas and New years break. And we've already been mobilsed straight into action for what looks prepared to be a very busy and exciting module!

Without giving the game away too much we have lots of exciting stuff planned for the next few months. As I speak my fellow volunteers are busy emailing different regions across the UK that they are to represent in the run up to the BYC's General Election Manifesto launch!

But what is this manifesto I hear you cry?!

The BYC’s General Election Manifesto is a document created by and for young people across the UK. It outlines five main campaigns to help improve the lives of young people in the UK. The BYC wants politicians to support and push for these campaigns in the run up to the General Election.

The Manifesto is set to launch on 15th February 2010 and we want YOU to be there! It's set to be an amazing day. There is a rally at Westminster and lots more fun activities planned. For more information visit: http://bycrally.eventbrite.com/ However if you can not make it do not fear – you can still participate! It would be great if you could organise an event or take action in your own community to demonstrate your support and spread the word!

Here is the who's who of BYC regional representatives...

Siobhan - North West and North East.
Sophie N - South East
Joel - South East
Ravina - South East
Lucy - London and South West
Emmanuel - West Midlands and South West
Vicky - East of England
Kirby - East Midlands and Yorkshire & the Humber
Rose - Scotland and Yorkshire & the Humber
Sophie C - Wales and Northern Ireland.

We're all really looking forward to being your BYC regional representatives. We want to try and generate as much support for the manifesto as we can.
