Cumbria is a fantastic place to live. The endless countryside, local produce, inspiration for many an escape from the rat race known all around the UK. However, if we’re not careful, The Lake District could fall victim to modernisation and many of our humble normalities could be affected if we don't plan ahead.
The biggest issue facing Cumbria is the dramatic loss of future generations. As Cumbria fails to host a variety of job opportunities for industries such as the arts, entertainment, tech, and more, and much of Cumbria’s youth are leaving to widen their horizons, with 20-24-year-olds making up the least amount of people in Cumbria, only 4.7% (ONS).
But, there is still time to make a change and help Cumbria develop into a county that supports its own future and for us to hopefully see Cumbria become a sustainable area for those that feel they need to move away to pursue their careers.
To engage in this change, we are conducting research that will allow us to investigate the thoughts and opinions of young people in Cumbria and how we can change our county to better suit YOUR future.
