Join Metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram in discussion with young people

The Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, Steve Rotheram, is holding an online conversation with the young people of the Liverpool City Region about the current and future impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their lives.

The event will take place on Wednesday 3rd June from 3:30pm to 5:00pm and the conversation will be led by young people.

Participants in the call will be able to submit questions to the Metro Mayor in writing during the conversation and also take part in online flash polls on all of the main issues affecting young people.  They will not appear on camera or be able to speak via their microphone during the event.

The results of this conversation will help to shape the Metro Mayor’s response to the pandemic, influencing plans and policies.  He will also share the feedback with the Prime Minister so that the views of and issues raised by the young people of our area are heard loudly and clearly!

The event is suitable for young people from the ages of 13 to 18, extending up to the age of 25 for those with special educational needs and or disabilities.
