Step Up, Take Responsibility, Be YOUth
Youth Week 2011 kicks off in Christchurch this week with a huge free concert.
“Youth Week 2011 isn’t just about young people stepping up and taking responsibility, it’s also about the rest of the community stepping up and realising all the great things young people do,” says Arataiohi spokeswoman, Andrea Leersnyder
“As most people now know, after the earthquakes the Student Army stepped up and took responsibility along with scores of others in the wake of devastation. Youth Week celebrates them and all other young people in our country who are simply awesome New Zealanders.”
This year the NZ National Commission for UNESCO is a major sponsor of Youth Week 2011.
Tomorrow’s concert is free and will be held in the “Big Top” outside the University of Canterbury Student Association at Ilam Road. Live performers include Bang, Bang Eche, Chartfest, Common Ground with DJs Annarchy, Chris Ellis, Arkotype and The Baker.
Guest speakers include Student Army leader Sam Johnson and Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker.
