This independent research report by Atkins – a member of the SCN-Lavalin Group, explores the views of some of those who will be living in the hopefully ‘levelled up’ world of the future, specifically, a sample of 16-21 year olds across the North of England. The research focused on three issues:
- Place: young people’s views on the infrastructure and amenities where they live.
- Prospects: young people’s feelings and expectations about their future education, skills, employment and opportunities.
- Perceptions: what young people know and how they feel about political and social issues such as devolution, levelling up, climate change and mental health.
