The Annual Conversation

What is the Annual Conversation? 

It is a conversation between children, young people and council leaders in Cornwall.

In the build up to G7 this June, and throughout the event itself, we heard from a vast number of children and young people in Cornwall about what matters to them, what they would like to celebrate, what they pledge to do and what they want / need World Leaders to do.

We would now like to invite you to work together with us to make sure the conversations we have with Leaders and Decision Makers here in Cornwall, has your voice at the forefront of it

What the Annual Conversation will involve?
Children and young people will have an opportunity share their views and register their interest in being involved in the Annual Conversation 
At the pre-event and the event itself there will be a number of facilitated workshops and activities for children, young people and Leaders to take part in alongside each other. Each activity and workshop will focus around the priorities we have heard from young people. At the moment, the suggested priorities are:

  • Climate and environment
  • Mental and physical health and wellbeing
  • Our Future: housing and careers.
