Burnley Young People Together

The new Burnley Together interactive youth experience is live!

The pilot platform is designed to engage, enable and encourage positive practices amongst young people during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond; empowering them to improve their health and wellbeing.

Funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) and developed by CHY Consultancy Ltd, STAY is a mobile-interactive experience that allows each user to earn unique digital merchandise (Badges) based on their activity and utilises live data feeds, Augmented Reality and GPS to reward them for positive behaviours; empowering them to improve their health and wellbeing.

Based on the established “5 Ways to Wellbeing” the digital experience allows young people to gain digital badges and selfie filters by learning new skills, getting active, connecting with people and taking notice of themselves, their community and their surroundings – all in a safe environment. Each badge celebrates their achievements and encourages further positive action.

Some of the activities include;

  • a race to all 20 premier league football grounds!
  • seeing how COVID-19 has affected the air around them
  • learning new recipes and home maintenance
  • pledging to give back to their community
  • realising their ambitions and finding out their role in space!

Access the youth experience by visiting the below link on your phone.
