In December 2018 we ran an event in the centre of Manchester with students from across Greater Manchester. 

The aim of the day was to reflect on the changes in Greater Manchester over the past 100 years, and for young people from across Greater Manchester to then share their vision for the future of our city region. They had the chance to hear from a number of people from various backgrounds about their own experiences, and about the work that is currently taking place to help shape their futures.

On the day, students visited the newly unveiled Emmeline Pankhurst statue in St Peter’s Square, the Council Chambers in Manchester Town Hall (where they took part in debates and delivered presentations) and then moved to the exciting new office space in Federation House (where they spent the afternoon developing digital skills and producing social media content with industry experts.)

The event was funded by the Women’s Vote Centenary Grant Scheme. Take a look at the work completed on the day on Twitter @GMTogether.
