Northern Futures Campaign
The Cabinet Office Youth Policy team and the office of the Deputy Prime Minister would like to invite you to get involved in the Deputy Prime Minister’s new initiative called Northern Futures. The project aims to facilitate an open conversation about economic growth in the North by inviting both experts and members of the public to share their ideas on challenges and solutions. A major part of this will be listening to views of young people and about what they want to see to make the North of England’s economy rival cities and regions around the world.
This is an outstanding opportunity to involve young people you work with in a high profile policy debate. Please see below a summary of the initiative and information about how to get involved.
We’re structuring the debate around a single question posed by the Deputy Prime Minister:
How do we build on the strengths in the North to create an economic core in the heart of the region that can compete with the biggest cities in the world?
