More than sixty people gathered at the Ziferblat event space in Manchester’s Northern Quarter to celebrate the publication of the report, How can we govern cities differently? The promise and practices of co-production.
Young People Missing from Decisions
As a group of young people from the Children's Society, we discussed issues to do with growing up and being involved in decisions.
We asked other young people about their views and opinions on two of the subjects we discussed.
- What you don't get taught at school and college that you think you should know about?
- What are the issues that young people care about and why do young people care about these issues?

We wrote LIFE LESSONS to share the results of our research. (Download the report above.)
In April 2019, we met with members of Greater Manchester's Youth Combined Authority to share our main findings. They used what they learned from us to help design Greater Manchester's "Curriculum for Life".
We also hope to get the attention of MPs, councillors and other decision makers to highlight what young people think.
