Newcastle150 calls on young people to shape Newcastle’s future

In 2032, Newcastle will be 150 years old – how will you shape Newcastle’s future? What will be your legacy?

Newcastle150, being run by Common Purpose, is bringing together young people from across Newcastle to think how they together can make Newcastle a greener city by 2032.

The initiative convenes young diverse leaders from across Newcastle on May 20th and 21st and May 24th and 25th and is free to attend.

You’ll come together online to investigate issues, collaborate, hold difficult conversations and work up ideas. You’ll test, refine and present your ideas to leaders in Newcastle.

By taking part in Newcastle150 you will:

•             Learn skills and tools to practice leadership in your own context including team building, problem solving and communications.

•             Build connections with your peers and established leaders from across Newcastle.

•             Earn a micro-credential badge that you can display on your LinkedIn profile and CV.

•             Have the opportunity to receive free, personalized leadership coaching sessions.

Newcastle150 is intergenerational, giving you the opportunity to work with around 30 established leaders from across Newcastle, who act as group advisors, speakers and immersion hosts.

Applications are open. To apply visit the Common Purpose website.
