Mr Hayward said: 'Barnsley is delighted to be hosting this event, and is looking forward to building on the success of the first one hosted by Rotherham last year.
'While there are small minorities from a number of cultures determined to force others into their way of thinking, I am proud to see that the youth, the future of South Yorkshire, are coming together and discussing issues with like-minded people from a diverse range of ethnic cultures and backgrounds. I believe this is the way forward for us all, and I am looking forward to hearing their views and ensuring Barnsley plays its part in forging solutions.'
