Live in York? Under 40? How do you find it?
City of York Council wants to hear from the city’s younger residents about their experience of living in this ancient city.
It is encouraging them to join ‘Our Big Conversation’ to help inform three big strategies shaping York’s future.
Their views will help the council develop new strategies around the economy, transport and carbon reduction.
The questions cover what York’s really like for young people living in and travelling around the city – alongside important issues such as climate change and quality life.
Share your experiences
What have your experiences been like of living in York? There are many challenges young people encounter:
- Getting on the housing ladder
- Starting a family
- Access to good jobs or apprenticeships.
Cllr Nigel Ayre, executive member for finance and performance, said: “This survey will inform three major strategies for the city shaping it for decades to come, which is why it’s so important that we hear from the broadest range of people who live, work and study here.
“If you are under 40 and want to share your views on these important next steps, I would urge you to take the full online survey today and help inform the strategies which are shaping York’s future.
“Even if you hate surveys, I’d encourage everyone to spare 20 to 30 minutes to tell us your views on things that really matter – like climate change, job prospects and homes in York.
“If you’d prefer, just join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #OBCYork.”
More participants are needed to represent younger people’s views, aspirations and concerns as we look to the future for York and its recovery from the pandemic.
The survey is wide-ranging and asks for your views across the board on what York is really like.
Your views will help shape what York will look like over the next ten years and beyond.
