INTRODUCING
THE CALEDONIA SCHOOL OF SPEECH WRITING

For young people with big ideas

 

"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

 
 

FREE ONLINE SUMMER SCHOOL

6th-8th August 2021

In its inaugural year, the Caledonia School of Speech Writing will offer 12 young people, aged between 16 and 19, 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 will provide 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 Director, is an Alfred Landecker Democracy Fellow and professional writer who began a career in speech writing after introducing US President Obama during an EU Summit in 2014. 


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