Campaign! Make An Impact provides an innovative approach to inspire young people to learn about historical campaigns through archive, museum and library collections, and then supports them to develop their own campaigns about areas they feel passionate about. The programme demonstrates how children, and young people can be inspired by the past, and find their own voices and confidence to change the future.
