Youth Stop AIDS is a youth-led movement campaigning for a world without AIDS. As a global community, we know how to end AIDS – failing to do so is unjust, unnecessary and morally unacceptable. That’s why our network of young people across the UK speak out, take creative action and engage those in power to ensure that governments, global institutions and corporations are committed to ending AIDS by 2030.
Each year Youth Stop AIDS supports young people affected by HIV or AIDS to voice their story across the UK. This year we would like to extend the speaker invitation to people living with Tuberculosis and Hepatitis C Virus as well and particularly those affected by HIV and Hep C or HIV and TB.
The Speaker Tour will visit around 15-20 cities and universities across the UK within a three to four week period, with a proposed visit to DFID (Department for International Development) and to the Houses of Parliament to engage with key UK decision makers.
The Speaker Tour aims to engage and inspire young people in the UK to take action to help tackle the pandemic. As well as telling your story at afternoon and evening speaker events, we will be taking part in regional campaign activities alongside our young campaigners on student campuses and in cities across the UK.
Your role will be to work as part of a team of two speakers, alongside a Restless Development staff member and driver, visiting cities and universities around the UK.
