Comments for facilitators

The talk show forum is something is that most young people recognise. Some shows have a lot of abuse and fights. Be clear from the start about what is and is not acceptable.

It is an opportunity for young people to choose what part they will play in the whole process eg. not everyone wants to be out front and play the host, however they may ask a question as an audience member or video the event.
