The Patchwork Foundation are delighted to announce our event in collaboration with the US Embassy. The Biden Administration: 100 Days in Office will be an evening of panel discussions and breakout sessions as we discuss President Biden‘s first 100 days in office. Specialists and young people from the UK and US will be joining to explore the ways in which our two countries can use our ‘Special Relationship’ to create positive change and to tackle some of the biggest issues of our generation.
The event will take place on Tuesday, May 11th from 6pm to 8:30pm on Zoom. You can register here.
The running order of the event will be as follows (BST):
6:00pm – 6:10pm: Welcome and Opening Remarks
6:10pm – 6:40pm: Keynote Address
6:40pm – 7:25pm: Plenary Discussion and Q&A – Biden’s First 100 Days and the future of the ‘Special Relationship’.
7:25pm – 8:15pm: Breakout Sessions. Each session will be led by young people and senior experts both in the UK and the US. You can sign up for your preferred breakout session upon registration. Options will include:
- Get Involved: Making a Difference Through Politics – How can young people create change through politics? What are the best ways to get involved? Why is it important that young people from all backgrounds use their voices, and how can we make sure they are able to?
- Effective Allyship – If this last year has taught us anything, it’s that we all need to work together to make sure our society is representative and inclusive of all backgrounds. This session will look at how each of us can effectively leverage our own privileges to create space for and lift the voices of others.
- The Climate Emergency – High on the agenda for the Biden Administration as well as the British Government is tackling climate change, so what can we expect to see from both over the next few years, how successful will it be, and what part do young people have to play?
8:15pm – 8:30pm: Closing Remarks
We hope to see you all there! We’ll be announcing our line-up of brilliant speakers over the next few weeks, so watch this space!
