We want you to be our next Digital Champion!

“What’s a Digital Champion?” you ask? Well, a Digital Champion is someone from our local community who follows our Digital Charter, to create a nice online environment for Blaenavon.

As a Digital Champion, you will also commit to advertise the town, as well as the events taking place to spread positivity. This project also focuses on improving mental health within the community, which we will achieve by promoting and completing kind and positive actions and activities.

You can assist us in doing this by posting and sharing online the positive thing happening all the time in our town.  Some of the rules you would commit to would include, using social media to promote our town and the positivity surrounding it, supporting and pushing local businesses online and avoiding spreading or posting fake news about Blaenavon and the people living here. In terms of business, you will use social media to promote inclusivity and make sure everyone is treated equally, while also not using social media to demonize young people or group all their actions as negative.

If you’re interested in the lucky opportunity to become a Digital Champion, you can find us at ‘whyouthambassadors’ on Instagram, or you can use the QR code which will send you directly to the World Heritage Youth Ambassadors website.

We look forward to accepting you into our new Digitally positive world!
