A tribute to his many successes would be the annual Pan London Youth Day. A wholly inclusive and free event it offers youth the chance to meet and discuss opportunities available academically, culturally, socially and career-wise in a safe one-stop shop environment with organisations from the private, public and 3rd sector. Offering a broad spread of activity, exhibitors, health, well-being and mentoring chances the objective of the event can be summarised as: “Offering - Inspiration, Aspiration and Motivation to London’s youth”.

A unique experience, it brings together thousands of youths annually from London’s broad social spectrum. In Shawn’s words it “Promotes One-London that reflects its look and feel, realising that today’s youth are tomorrow’s future”.
