YSI 6th Year Coffee Morning
On 18th November, TY Young Social Innovators hosted a Social Coffee Morning for all 6th Year students. The aim was to promote their new project ‘Who Am I – Without WiFi?!’. This project is about creating awareness of the negative effects that technology can have on young people. These include: poor social skills, isolation, low concentration levels and addiction. The over use of technology can also effect your physical & mental health leading to depression, anxiety & low self esteem. For our Coffee Morning, students handed their phone devices in before sitting down. They then enjoyed a “no-tech” time to socialise and chat to each other while enjoying some tea, coffee and refreshments. Students also received leaflets displaying helpful tips they can use to reduce their use of technology.
