The Highland Youth Voice website is one of the most eloquent retorts I have come across to those people who say young people are not interested in politics. Anyone who is concerned that young people are apathetic towards politics should visit this site.

Great site, I think the design team, ITC and others have done a fine job. Now for some shameless plugging, visit the Council's site and tell us what you think on GM Crop Trials, Transport / Roads and Gaelic issues. Go to the home page at www.highland.gov.uk drop in and give us your views. Or join the discussion at Think-net. All the best with the site! Regards John

I was researaching into the issue of e-consultation with young people. I came across your site, which is very good. I hope more and more young people have the opportunity to become involved via this format. Best wishes to all.

Looks like a good site. As a challenge, see if you can find our equivalent one down here! I lookforward to any feedback. I am the portfolio holder for Chiildren & Young people, and the "e-member champion". Do the best jobs always have the worst titles?. nwalker@cornwall.gov.uk

I have just returned from an excellant presentation given by the Highlnad Youth Voices. They are putting where young people where they belong - in the decision making process. They are a credit to the youth of the Highlands and hopefully their example will spread across the rest of the country. Keep up the excellant work. glyn@doddy.co.uk

Deputy Minister for Education

It's great that young people in the Highlands are taking such an interest in issues of major importance to Scotland's future. It is vital that more young people get involved in politics and citizenship. A good example has been the contribution made today by Youth Voice representatives in relation to the National Debate on Education. I was first elected to my local council when I was 22 years old. I will be interested to see how many people from Highland Youth Voice are members of the Scoittish Parliament in a few years time! Well done to you all in relation to all that you are doing.

Good to see people are using the site to debate; some excellent ideas and contributions are emerging. Young people's views are also very welcome on Think Net (www.think-net.org) regards the current debate on Education. Visit Think Net (www.think-net.org) and give us your opinion, it's your opportunity to influence. Continued success with the site! Regards John

An excellent concept, well executed and a good website to boot! Well done to the Youth Voice who have an important role to play and by all accounts take this very seriously. As the Sports advisor on the InvernessHighland2008 group, I was delighted with the level of input by HYV with regards to submitting ideas some of which are excellent. Keep up the good work.

What a brilliant site! Obviously run by and for young people. I've been working with a group of secondary school students who have been in touch with European school students' organisations (EO of Norway, LAKS in Holland, CANAE in Spain and OBESSU for all Europe) and want to start one on England. Your site is a fantastic example of how networks could be built. Will anyone from HYV be at the UKYP in Leicester next week? (derry@demo51.freeserve.co.uk)

i really like the site - deisgn, up-to-date info, and used debate forums - excellent! Particularly interesting was the debate behind citizencards. We have been piloting a 'smart'young scot card across Argyll and Bute for all 12 - 25 yr olds. The card is only one small bit, of what for us has been a catalyst for stimulating youth issues as a whole. Highland Youth Voice seems to give a 'good practice' approach which we should be aspiring to - especially given the common issues of rurality that both areas share!

Seems like I'm the first man outside Scotland who decided to leave a note... :-) I went trough the site and must praise you guys for undertaking this truly great and valuable effort! Especially significant is that you have turned it to an alive site of online democratic discourse. Great initiative! I was working with the National Youth Council in my coutry, and developed its web-site, and now I do a research work in Digital Democracy. AND I love Scotland, so I didn't miss the link to this site when I saw it.

I am pleased that important issues such as the environmental implications of modern life and the occasional problematic inefficiency of the governing bureaucracy are being discussed. However, I also see calls for such things as 'skate parks' and leisure facilities from areas that already have sufficient provisions for leisure that aren't being used to nearly their full capacity. IMO Skating is a tempory craze that will soon die out. It is well known that this country extracts hefty amounts of Capital from other countries. We should concentrate on matters such as providing quality healthcare, the environment and Education.
