Caledonia School of Speech Writing Showcase 2021

 

"Exactly the sort of thing I would have loved to have had access to when I was trying to work out what to do with my life."

Jules Johnston, Senior News Editor at The Brussels Times

 
 

SUMMER SCHOOL

In its inaugural year, the Caledonia School of Speech Writing offered eight young people the opportunity to take part in a three-day online summer school on the art of speech writing.

Funded by the Alfred Landecker Foundation, in partnership with Humanity in Action, the school provided a unique opportunity for young people to learn and practice how to speak publicly with skill and confidence.

The goal of the school is to encourage young people to speak out about the causes which matter to them most on their journey to becoming the energetic, empathetic leaders of our communities.

RE-IMAGINING DEMOCRACY

Created by Laura Westring and the Alfred Landecker Democracy Fellowship

Laura Westring, the school's creator, is a senior fellow of the Landecker Democracy Fellowship and professional writer who began a career in speech writing after introducing US President Obama during an EU Summit in 2014. 


Based in Stirlingshire, Laura wants the school to be a chance for young people of all backgrounds in Scotland to get comfortable with using their voices and their stories to inspire others.
