    I am not able to attend but can I commend you for a great programme and a fantastic opportunity for developing a positive voice for males. Such events provide both a focus for discussion and networking and a place to develop the basic messages that are needed in our “sound bite” society. Can I also commend the men’s network for the work done in developing a positive agenda for boys and men for the future. In increasingly challenging times we really do have get beyond some of the tired old ideologies developed in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
