Roberta Blackman-Woods, MP for the City of Durham, recently attended the World Community Day Youth Workshops event organised by Most Education, a Durham based non-profit organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities.
The students at the event, who came from all across the world as well as from Durham, took part in a number of workshops and prepared presentations on a number of categories, including Racism and Prejudice, Discrimination, Disability and Immigration.
This event was part of Most Education’s 10th International World Youth Exchange, which is one of the only residential exchange projects in the UK. The project is funded by Erasmus+, the EU Commission, Most Education, and the British Council.

“I was delighted to meet with the students who had come to Durham to take part in the exchange programme, and to see the presentations they had prepared for the event.
The students who attend spend their time with English families during their stay, and it is a wonderful opportunity for them to expand their horizons, build their skills and confidence, and experience other cultures.
Most Education do a great job organising these events, and not only provide a wonderful experience for students visiting Durham, but allow many young people here in Durham a window into the wider world. I very much look forward to working with Most Education on further events in the future.”
