Workshops, training and programmes

Be Internet Citizens

The Problem:

Young people need to be able to navigate the internet safely. It’s a space that offers a bounty of opportunities but also risk.

Our solution:

With Google.org and YouTube, Beatfreeks run a regular digital citizenship training programme [link to BIC page of website] for teachers and students to help them learn how to use the internet more safely. We cover fake news, filter bubbles, echo chambers, emotional manipulation and more, and provide PSHE accredited resources to teachers

Campaign Development

Pass The Fact

The problem:

Young people are not always complying with the government’s guidelines around COVID. How do we make sure key messages get to them in a way that feels relevant?

Our solution:

Birmingham City Council asked Beatfreeks to create a time-sensitive campaign which would land public health messaging with 16 – 25s around COVID-19 and how to follow government advice to keep safe and well.

Youth Governance

The Young West Midlands Combined Authority

The problem:

Decisions are being made on behalf of young people everyday, we need more inclusive leadership where young people are part of the decision making process.

Our solution:

The West Midlands Combined Authority commissioned Beatfreeks to recruit and manage the creation of its first young board, the second of its kind in the UK. This Young Combined Authority [link to twitter page twitter.com/wmyoungboard] brings together a diverse group of 15-25 year-olds to help the WMCA ‘see the world through the eyes’ of young people, to build political leadership capacity, and to involve young people in the devolution agenda.

Insight

HS2

The problem:

Young people now will be HS2’s future customers; young people living in Birmingham now will be impacted by the train tracks being laid and stations being built. How do we make sure they have their say now?

Our solution:

HS2 worked with Beatfreeks to engage young people (14-25) in their site-wide vision. The starting point was a ‘hack day’ focused on how under 25s use ‘open space’ to understand what role a ‘station fit for the 21st century’ can play in improving the lives of young people.

Research

Take The Temperature

The Problem

Young people’s stories are not reaching the media headlines but under-25s will be the most affected group of people from COVID-19.

The Solution

Beatfreeks went and asked young people aged 14-25 the impact COVID is having and will have on their lives. Off the back of this UK wide data gathering exercise, we launched a report analysing the trends, and offering recommendations. Within 3 weeks it had been downloaded nearly 1000 times.
