We are looking for 10 groups of eight young people, who are 16 to 25 years old, from across the UK. We want to hear about your passion and enthusiasm for helping your community! We’d love a wide range of voices to be heard on what communities could and should look like in 10 years’ time.

We’ll invite successful applicants to take part in a two-hour interactive workshop, where we'll discuss lots of different topics about communities and share ideas.  

For the workshops we'll ask participants to have cameras turned on, because seeing who we’re talking to leads to a much better experience for everyone. The sessions will also be recorded, so our researcher can analyse the key topics from discussions and learn all about your hopes for future communities.
