Cultural Youth Forum

We are Leicestershire County Council’s Cultural Youth Forum, and our mission is to help make heritage, libraries and cultural activities more relevant and interesting to other young people!

Have your say!


Natural & Cultural Heritage

For the next two years our focus will be the relationship between natural and cultural heritage, such as:

  • Cultural heritage and the climate
  • Historic environment and sustainability
  • Natural resources and our historic environment

We will be supporting young people in satellite project across the county to explore their unique opinions, views and perspectives about environmental topics they are passionate about. They will express their voice through a collaborative art piece which will then be shared within their communities to generate conversation, gather feedback and insight. These projects and the insight gathered will have the opportunity to help shape and inform future plans for Net Zero Leicestershire.

All our activity promotes youth participation and promotes youth voice in line with LCC’s ambition for a countywide Youth Charter.
