On 16thJanuary 2019 Penarth Youth Action and Llantwit Youth Council had a joint meeting. We have previously discussed meeting up with LYC to find a project that we could both work on.

In this meeting we had discussions about who we are, what work we have done for our communities and what work we are passionate about and would like to continue working towards. The top three most important topics PYA and LYC would like to tackle are plastic free, sexism and mental health. After a vote from all members, plastic free came out on top. We found out from this meeting that Penarth and Llantwit Major are currently working towards gaining their plastic free certificate and this is something both groups feel very strongly about.

PYA and LYC have discussed the possibility of going on a plastic free residential trip. This would allow us to share some ideas and possibly plan our joint project!
