Opinions wanted: Making things better for young people
10 points to Gryffindor* if you noticed that the boards had a slightly new look, with our new community voice section. We think you are an awesome bunch of people with ideas that really deserve a platform to become reality. Whether that be helping us with stuff within The Mix such as new community features (e.g. positivity corner, new chat and boards development) or whether it is sharing ideas that help to change the way things are for young people in the UK.
We are going into a big planning phase at The Mix towers and we are keen to get your thoughts on the types of issues we should be tackling. We were really interested to read your thoughts on the issues you are most passionate about, and we want to build on this to help us shape things moving forward. So, here’s how you can get involved:
Don’t think too much, just write down the first few ideas that pop into your head. Open the spoiler to reveal the questions:
- What are the best things about being a young person today
- What are the things that keep you awake at night worrying?
- If one thing could change in the world to make it better, what would it be?
- If The Mix could add or change one thing to what we do to make it better, what would it be?
Vote in the poll
We are keen to know what the biggest issues facing young people are right now. There is a lot being talked about in the media, from climate change, to knife crime, to increased mental health services. We are keen though to know what YOU think is actually the biggest issue right now. Vote in the poll to let us know, and if you choose other, let us know what it is, no matter how big or small.
We’d love to see as much discussion as possible below. Remember, there are no wrong answers here, all opinions are valued the same. If you really don’t want to share your thoughts publicly, drop us a PM and we can add them into our findings.
