Local Government is straining under austerity measures and each are finding, or in some cases failing to find, creative and innovative solutions to deliver services and change for their communities. With growing inequality in society and the burden of budget cuts hurting the most vulnerable this project will seek to showcase the best initiatives in place to meet modern day challenges and outline some of the ambitions that young people have for the future of local government policy.
Speakers will include Phil Glanville, Mayor of Hackney, Cllr Rachel Blake, Tower Hamlets Cabinet Member for Strategic Development and Waste, Cllr James Beckles, Newham, and Cllr Abena Oppong-Asare, Bexley.
Young people from across our movement and our nation want to see a better Britain for everyone and this piece of work will aim to give them a voice. Over the course of the next ten months we have events planned in Westminster, Liverpool, Hull, Glasgow, Cardiff, Manchester, Sheffield, Brighton and more.
