1 BUZZ OFF CAMPAIGN UPDATE 1 “The 11 MILLION children and young people in England have a voice” Children’s Commissioner for England, Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green What the BUZZ OFF campaigners have been up to……..

2 BUZZ OFF CAMPAIGN UPDATE 2 “The 11 MILLION children and young people in England have a voice” Children’s Commissioner for England, Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green Since launching the campaign in February the BUZZ OFF campaigners have continued their work to get people to stop shops an businesses using Mosquitos. Mosquito devices make a high pitch sound which can only be heard by the under 25s and are used by shops and businesses to stop young people hanging around in groups outside.

3 BUZZ OFF CAMPAIGN UPDATE 3 “The 11 MILLION children and young people in England have a voice” Children’s Commissioner for England, Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green A survey conducted in Corby, the home town of the young people involved in the BUZZ OFF campaign, conducted by their local MP Phil Hope found that 82 per cent of residents thought the devices should be banned or regulated, and that the best way to deal with anti-social behaviour is to have more PCSOs and more for youngsters to do.

4 BUZZ OFF CAMPAIGN UPDATE 4 “The 11 MILLION children and young people in England have a voice” Children’s Commissioner for England, Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green In March we received some great news when supermarket chain Co-op said it was going to stop using the devices outside its shops

5 BUZZ OFF CAMPAIGN UPDATE 5 “The 11 MILLION children and young people in England have a voice” Children’s Commissioner for England, Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green In July there was more fantastic news when Kent County Council announced that they were going to ban the use of Mosquitos on Council buildings. The Council worked alongside Kent Youth County Council to find out what their views on the device before deciding to ban it. Find out more by reading Sir Al’s blog.

6 BUZZ OFF CAMPAIGN UPDATE 6 “The 11 MILLION children and young people in England have a voice” Children’s Commissioner for England, Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green In June Sir Al spoke to the Association of Convenience Store Owners. Although a lot of the people didn’t agree with what Sir Al said it was a great opportunity to tell them about how strongly young people feel about being discriminated against. Also in June, the Deputy Children’s Commissioner and Charmain from Corby spoke at a conference organised by Compass about the campaign.

7 BUZZ OFF CAMPAIGN UPDATE 7 “The 11 MILLION children and young people in England have a voice” Children’s Commissioner for England, Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green It’s a face and the line underneath is to symbolise the mosquito feeling cut out of society. Charmain Us teenagers arent all bad, by using mosquito devices your treating us like pests. When most of us are nice warm hearted people. With dreams that could change the society we live in. Katlyn, 14 Young people have been telling us what they think about Mosquito devices on our website – this is what they have been saying.

8 BUZZ OFF CAMPAIGN UPDATE 8 “The 11 MILLION children and young people in England have a voice” Children’s Commissioner for England, Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green I don’t agree with the use of Mosquitos – they don’t always work and are painful to hear, Moonfly 14. I made this shape because it is how I feel about the devices, they are dreadful and make people feel upset and angry. Young people shouldnt be made to feel like this.

9 BUZZ OFF CAMPAIGN UPDATE 9 “The 11 MILLION children and young people in England have a voice” Children’s Commissioner for England, Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green What comes next……….. We will be publishing a toolkit on our website to help young people to start a campaign to stop the use of Mosquitos where they live. We are asking people who use Mosquitos to get involved with 11 MILLION Takeover Day on the 7 th November and invite children and young people to discuss issues surrounding anti-social behaviour. If you have any questions or want to find out more about the campaign
