Our Future Voice Now

About the Project

 

With the support of Barclays Life Skills, the Our Future Voice Now programme aims to give platform and voice to young people (aged 16-24) on key societal challenges (post-COVID); build a library of qualitative insights; and help shape policy recommendations for future action.

Co-designed by the young people themselves, an “Inter-Generational Working Group” brings together a mix of expert contributors and youth representatives to work through issues, develop new ideas and share learnings, wisdom and experience while amplifying the younger voices.

The programme begins by investigating Jobs, Skills & Employment and Mental Health & Wellbeing as urgent priorities.
