Queen’s Young Leaders Awards
« on: June 24, 2017, 09:25:48 AM »
Her Majesty The Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, accompanied by Prince Harry, will host a ceremony and reception at Buckingham Palace to present Awards to The Queen’s Young Leaders for 2017.

Among the guests will be the Chairman of The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust, Sir John Major, Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, Sir Mo Farah and Caspar Lee.

The Queen’s Young Leaders Programme celebrates the achievements of inspiring young people from across the Commonwealth who are dedicated to driving change in their communities. The Queen was 26 years old when she became Head of the Commonwealth in 1952. This five year programme was launched in 2014 in honour of Her Majesty’s lifetime of service to the Commonwealth – a global network of 52 countries and 2.2 billion people, of whom 60 % are under 30 years old.

This year’s winners, aged between 18 and 29, are working in support of a range of issues from tackling bullying in schools, to preserving the environment, to promoting gender equality. In the week leading up to the Awards Ceremony, the winners will travel to the UK from across 36 Commonwealth countries to participate in a programme of training, mentoring and networking opportunities. This includes workshops at the University of Cambridge and visits to No 10, the UK headquarters of Facebook and the BBC World Service.

The BBC’s The One Show will broadcast live from Buckingham Palace during the reception that evening. The Awards ceremony will be broadcast on Facebook Live, bringing the winners’ families from around the Commonwealth inside Buckingham Palace.

Following the reception, Prince Harry will attend the Awards Dinner at Australia House where the search for the final cohort of Queen’s Young Leaders will be launched.

Three Australians are among the youngsters.
Madeleine Buchner, from Melbourne, set up a program that supports young carers called Little Dreamers.
I was in awe of her when she was interviewed  on the radio; she is an inspiration and a great helper.
Some people cope well, others don't yet they do their best and still others, like the roomfull of self motivated young prople with the Queen,  go way beyond the call of duty.   :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:
