The North Shore Young Civic Forum is an initiative of North Shore Community Resources’ Democracy Café in collaboration with CityHive.
The project is designed to address the lack of participation in and influence of younger people in North Shore municipalities’ community overall engagement processes and Council meetings. Though local governments have jurisdiction and decision making responsibility for a broad variety of government services, land use and taxes, younger adults are often missing from the conversation. As a result, decisions and policies may not always reflect younger adults’ needs, interests and preferences.
