Minister puts youth at heart of war projects

First published in

YOUNG people in Wales must be placed at the heart of the nation’s commemorations of the First World War if we are to build an enduring cultural and educational legacy.

That is the message from Wales Office Minister Baroness Randerson who yesterday attended the launch of the ‘Wales at War’ (W@W) initiative - a digital campaign led by the National Library of Wales and funded by the Armed Forces Covenant, the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Welsh Government.

The project is designed to develop inclusive learning and heritage activities.

Baroness Randerson joined the First Sea Lord Sir George Zambellas, and the First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones at the event, held on board Royal Navy survey vessel HMS Enterprise, which will be docked alongside Britannia Quay in Cardiff Bay.

The launch event is being held on the eve of the sixth annual Armed Forces Day, where young cadets, veterans and serving members of the armed forces will gather in Cooper’s Field, Cardiff to thank the Services.
