Event description

Description

YGAM has teamed up with City Law School to host a symposium in order to launch the results of an independent evaluation on the effectiveness of the YGAM preventative education programme around gambling and gaming. The symposium also provides a wide range of professional insight into the role of preventative education.


Gambling and gaming are of growing concern internationally and particularly in the UK, where opportunities to gamble or game online have become increasingly more accessible to young people through mobile devices, casinos and betting shops. This has increased the risk of problematic gambling and gaming with rising levels of negative impacts on young people being felt across the UK. This is evidenced by growing numbers of young people contacting support services or engaging much more frequently with gambling and gaming.


As such and with little in the way of education around these risks, YGAM was set up to encourage organisations to educate their staff and in turn their young people. Thus attempting to break the cycle of harm that can be caused by a lack of understanding and to increase knowledge of the issues within organisations working with young people, particularly schools and support services.


The symposium brings together a range of prominent academics, education, and industry experts, who offer their advice and insight into this issue, which we hope will inspire a wider acknowledgment and engagement with our programme and social mission.


The symposium will be held between 12:45 – 1635 and will be followed by a networking reception, which will finish at 1700.


The event is to be held at City University in Central London and is bookable through the following website www.ygamevents.co.uk
