    I care about the environment and the quality of life for all residents in regards to ensuring that their physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual health serve them in the best way it can. Furthermore that the contribution we individually make to the planet is in the best interest of all!

    Years of ideologically driven but economically unsound austerity policies have devastated opportunities for young people. We have a generation coming up who by all measures are predicted to have a lower standard of living than their parents. Youth services from Sure Start to Teen provision have been repeatedly slashed and underfunded. Access to education and apprenticeships has been increasingly limited, and further impacted by the pandemic. Affordable housing is completely out of reach for the majority of young people. Our young people will face the full force of economic and environmental challenges that we have repeatedly failed to address. A nation that does not invest in their young people has truly lost its way. This should be our priority.

    Having a broad spread of information is key in obtaining a balanced view of a healthier and informed perspective of life

      Thank you for your thoughts. Yes absolutely it is about raising the “Quality of Debate” so we can help people to help themselves and make better informed decisions.

    Hi Nick

    I think this is a really interesting initiative. I have responded to the survey. Will you be sharing the results at some point? Sustainability and the environment perhaps deserve an explicit question.

    Best wishes

    Martin

    I have completed the survey and would be interested in the results and what they might lead to. Hertfordshire has prided its self on being the county of opportunity for as long as I can remember so it would be wonderful if there were more opportunities – particularly with regard to training/retraining and apprenticeships.

    Anne hi there,
    Yes this continuous adult learning is important, not just for the adults but also for their kids. Everyone wants the best for their Kids, but some people need some help. This is right across the wealth and ability spectrum. What we are seeing a lot of is successful career people having no time for their Kids, and disfunctional Kids when the parents get home tired from work.

    We are thinking about things that Parents can do with the kids, and opportunitiies for them to build self esteem together. Yvonne Davis’s Charity is looking at this as well.

    Any thoughts on the subject at Oakview?

    Poetry books, with Poems from the Children, and response poems from the parents, grandparents, should they wish, could lead to joined up poetry readings at the school.

    These thoughts around Intergenerational learning are very much at the fore at the moment.

    The damage is done by perceived pressure on the parents, to be right, in control, commanding, top down control, etc. The evidence is that functional families and later life skills are best served by doing things together. Kids know their place feel secure, involved and valued. So they belong. Other approaches inherently tend to exclude and be judgemental.

    That is our current thinking…

    Take care

    Nick
