Our future is already here in the 33% of the population of Bristol which is under 25. Providing for young people has gone up the policy and news agenda, with cross-party commitment to investment. This is a pressing time to explore what services will look like in the region for young people in 2025.
Join us and co-create this vision with young people through a series of small, interactive, even playful workshops. You’ll get to collaborate with young people, listen and hear, work with their energy and ideas, so together you co-create the shape of youth services to come.
The event will be chaired and curated by young people. We will screen a short film based on young people’s experiences with youth services across the city. We’ll then have a series of workshops where you’ll work in teams with young people thinking about what services should look like to fit the needs of young people on these themes:
• employment, education and training
• keeping young people in school
• equality & equity
• places and spaces for young people
• mental & physical health
• violence & anti-social behaviour
• housing and youth homelessness
• support for young carers
