November Meeting

It’s that time again!

Attaching the agenda for this month’s meeting which is taking place tomorrow, on the 18th of November; as always, we’ll be at the City Hall from 4:30pm reimbursing bus/train tickets, giving time credits, and for refreshments, before getting started at 5pm. Here’s how the evening’s set to look – CYC Meeting Agenda November 18th 2015 City Hall (1)

It’s an important one, as we’ll be starting to look at our new priorities properly for the first time, and debating what they mean to us, and how we can work on them.

Hope to see you all there!

The Results Are In!

As most of you know by now, CYC members, and young members of the British Youth Council all over the UK have been working hard to co-ordinate the biggest youth consultation in Britain… and the results are in! The UK results can be found here, but here is a detailed account of the findings in Cardiff.

Unfortunately, there was only a turnout of 38% among Cardiff’s school pupils… but altogether, we managed to collect the views of over 7,000 young people, which is great! Hopefully next year, you can help us make that number even bigger?

The top four were an interesting mix, with Living Wage coming out on top, followed by Curriculum 4 Life, Tackling Racism and Religious Discrimination, and at fourth, Mental Health. On the 18th of November, Cardiff Youth Council will be coming together for their monthly all members meeting, where a discussion will take place about what these results mean, and how we can go forward in tackling these really important issues for young Cardiffians all over the city. Come and be a part of the discussion!

Have a read through the rest of the results, and make sure you let us know what you think in the comments, or on Twitter, Facebook, or our new Instagram account. See you there, thanks again guys 🙂
