HRH The Prince of Wales holds first Google Hangout with the #iwill campaign
- Social Inclusion
Patron of Step Up To Serve and the #iwill campaign, HRH The Prince of Wales met young people involved in social action via his first ever Google+ Hangout in November 2014. This was part of the first anniversary celebrations of the campaign.
Hosted by Alex Jones from the BBC’s One Show, the 30 minute Google+ Hangout gave The Prince of Wales an opportunity to talk publicly with a group of young people about their experiences of social action, with a focus on how they use technology to help others.
Since launching, Step Up To Serve and #iwill has helped secure significant new funding for youth social action, as well as support from over 100 business, education, faith and voluntary sector organisations.
The Prince of Wales and Alex Jones at Clarence House were joined by George Fielding, BEM, Helen Davies, Live Chat Moderator for YouthNet, Jacob Boyzile from the Army Cadets and Ronan Dunne, Chief Executive of O2. The four young people who joined via the web are #iwill ambassadors from around the UK were Jordan Caldwell from Northern Ireland, Hannah Palmer-Davis from the Isle of Wight, Devan Witter from Yorkshire and Sarah Shaikh from Surrey.
