press conference - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Before the seasoned journalists arrived, we had a daily children and youth conference first. Young people were invited to come and ask the questions they needed to hear answers for and keep their government cognisant of the prevailing issues affecting them. Then, after the adults had asked all they needed to for that day, folks were invited out into the street for an outdoor aerobics session to music, led by various keep fit instructors. Being televised too, it gave the population another way to get in shape and provided a good example for children internationally.
The children's press conference was more akin to a family breakfast, friendly and nurturing. It was the most fun part of the day for all of us, refreshing and a chance to renew our sense of purpose.
