Derbyshire Youth Summit 2017

Year 5 and 6 delegates attended the Modern Slavery Derbyshire Summit 2017, held in Derby Cathedral.  The summit was led by the Bishop of Derby. He is a leading international figure for anti-slavery and victim support work. Through his role in the House of Lords, he worked closely on the Modern Slavery Bill, which became law in 2015.

This was followed by The Arkwright Society education team historical presentation, which taught us about the impact of the industrial revolution on Derbyshire and the links to the slave trade through raw cotton from the plantations. We found out about the work of children in the mills and Richard Arkwright’s had a very different approach to managing his workers.

Afterwards, we had an interactive session by Derby and Derbyshire Modern Slavery Partnership. We learnt about Modern Slavery in 2017 and exploitation in 2017 Britain.

The final session was about Being a Good Shopper, which was led by Associate Professor Dr Dave Walsh and Dr David Patton of Derby University. We learnt about slavery in the product supply chains, the involvement of children, how it affects consumers and how consumers can take action.

A highlight of the summit, was helping to create a banner to mark the second anniversary of the 2015 Modern Slavery Act. When completed, the banner will tour around the county, including the Crooked Spire at Chesterfield.
