Landecker Democracy Fellow Laura Westring is a writer and Leadership Communications Consultant who leads Public Affairs at Amiqus, a tech for good company.
In her project she will develop Scotland’s first residential (or online) Speech Writing School which will inspire young people from diverse backgrounds to cultivate their leadership potential. The purpose of the school is to encourage 12 young people to speak out about what matters to them; to demonstrate the value of investing in essential employability and citizenship skills through the school’s showcase event, and to inspire all participants to consider becoming community organisers – engaged in the enhancement of democracy – through the provision of a unique, high-value, distance learning opportunity.
