How are you choosing who takes part in the Annual conversation?

    We are looking for 24 children and young people who represent real life Cornwall. We will make choices that represent where people live, a varied age range and a mix of views and ideas.

    We know that it is more likely that children who are confident will apply but if you know someone who has really good ideas and views to share and just need a bit more support, we want to hear from them too. The main thing is that those children and young people who do get picked come to the Annual Conversation with a good idea of what is important not only to themselves, but other people of their age. 

    What will the Annual Conversation be like?

    The Annual Conversation will be an event where children, young people and leaders get a chance to talk in groups about what matters most in Cornwall, a chance to find out more about children's rights and democratic processes, and to make plans about how leaders and children can work together well in the future. 

    How can I find out more about what the council is doing?

    Whenever there are decisions made or strategies developed in the Council, they want to get views from people in Cornwall about what they think. There is lots of information and surveys on the Council Let's Talk website that you can get involved in. 


    How old do I have to be to take part?

    We are keen to support as many children and young people aged between 10 and 24 years old to take part in the event itself. If you are younger than 10 or are working with children in Y5 or below, please support their involvement through the Capture Form. 

    I want to be involved, but am not available on some of the key dates

    We are so pleased you want to be involved. We are keen to support as many people to be involved in as many different ways as possible. To be an Ambassador we really need to you attend all dates. If you can't, please still get involved by completing the capture forms to let us know your ideas, celebrations and solutions so we can present these for the young people who attend the pre-event workshop and the Annual Conversation itself to take forward. 

    If you would like to be involved in further opportunities to have your say and work alongside us to shape things, please contact our Youth Council who can offer more opportunities
