Shaping Generation of Change – tackling racial inequality in LCR

Event Date: 19 January 2021

Hosted by LCRCA | 3-5pm 19 Jan 2021  – repeated 10am-12noon 22 Jan | online

The race equality agenda and empowering young people are both high on the Metro Mayor’s list of commitments in helping to tackle inequality across the City Region.

The Generations of Change project is a collaboration between Liverpool City Region Combined Authority (LCRCA) and Curious Minds, which seeks to recruit six young people from communities which experience racism in our society and provide them with a placement with community-based organisations. Working with their host organisations, the young people will develop and deliver bespoke cultural engagement projects with the goal of amplifying the voices and sharing the lived experiences of citizens from diverse communities.

While serving as a crucial development opportunity for the young people involved in the project, the insights and feedback they gain will help to inform the Metro Mayor’s ongoing drive to tackle the inequality experienced by those who experience racism.

LCRCA is looking to launch the programme in March 2021 but, in order to finalise the programme, they would really value insights from organisations and individuals with experience of working with young people or on projects designed to address inequality.

They are keen to learn:

how we can learn from the projects you/your organisation have been involved in.

how this project might complement initiatives you’re currently working on.

how you may be able to support us and to identify further opportunities for collaboration.

Register for one of these sessions now to help shape the Generation of Change project and help tackle racial inequality in Liverpool City Region.

Register (for either date) via Eventbrite.
