The team of citizen journalists at Sussex Bylines are proud to announce the launch of Our Future, Our Voices, a platform for young people, where they can speak of their own experiences first-hand. A space where they can explore their creativity – their skills in photography, poetry, art, podcasts and articles that look at life through their unique and special lens. Throughout this week we are publishing articles by young writers. Subjects range from life at university during lockdown to the Swiss vote to ban the burqa, from the impact of social media on mental health to the environmental impact of incinerating our rubbish.
