We are delighted to announce that we are working with the Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees and the City Office to deliver an innovative youth conference.

‘Our Bristol, Our World’ will give young people from all backgrounds the chance to tell city leaders about the issues that matter to them, and what they want the future of Bristol to look like.

The conference is based around the One City Plan. – a new document from the government which sets out a vision for Bristol by 2050.

The One City Plan will help to shape the future of our city and will impact on the lives of young people across it, so it’s vital that they have their say.

Community members, Bristol-based organisations, and industry experts are invited to listen to and discuss young peoples’ perspective.

The conference will take place on Tuesday, October 22, at City Hall and will be centred on four topics, which are as follows:

  • Our Needs, Our Aspirations – Education and employment opportunities for young people
  • Our Culture, Our Politics – Access to art, politics and issues facing young people as citizens of Bristol
  • Our Climate, Our Planet – The climate emergency in Bristol
  • Our Health, Our Wellbeing – The mental and physical health of young people in Bristol

Marvin Rees has confirmed his attendance at Our Bristol, Our World, and we look forward to confirming more panellists and guests in due course.

We will also send further information on how to book tickets for Our Bristol, Our World as soon as they become available.
