Diversity to be celebrated by young people at conference in Poole

Bournemouth Echo: Diversity to be celebrated by young people at conference in Poole Diversity to be celebrated by young people at conference in Poole

YOUNG people will celebrate diversity and discuss ways of tackling discrimination at a Poole conference next Tuesday.

The Explore Diversity Conference at the Lighthouse will feature a range of workshops and presentations aimed at young people from Dorset schools.

The conference, organised by the Diverse Dorset consortium, breaks down the nine strands of the Equalities Act 2010 in a youth-friendly way. There will be workshops on racism, disability, sexual orientation and transgender issues, HIV/Aids, age and faith.

Pupils from Heathlands Primary School will deliver a presentation about the Rights of the Child.

This is the second Explore Diversity conference that Diverse Dorset has held.

The first was at the Life Centre in Winton in November 2012.

I do hope that they learn about discrimination against ordinary people with caravans who want to be able to pitch up anywhere, (for example a Pay n Display Car Park), break fences or any other impediments to their entry, pay nothing, and leave rubbish behind when they leave.

Presumably they will be celebrating the arrival of Travellers in Poole who represent a minority group right on our doorstep. On one hand we celebrate diversity, on the other we condemn it. If only everyone behaved like me, the world would be perfect. No diversity, but perfect!!
