Young people are decision makers: they are making decisions everyday about who they are, who they want to be, and therefore, they are deciding what this city will be like in the future. Young people are powerful. We just don’t treat them as such.

Brum Youth Trends is a pioneering flagship report for the city, first piloted in 2017, giving unprecedented insight on what young people think and feel about themselves, each other and the city from housing and transport, to arts and culture, to retail and brands. We want to get to know this city's reason for being: it's under 25 population. And we want you to know them too.

Brum Youth Trends gives young people the power to make a difference. We amplify the voices of young people by sharing their opinions, thoughts and insights captured through our annual survey and turn it all in to action by feeding it back to the policy makers, organisations and people that can do something about it.

The Summit is where the action starts! We give attendees a copy of the research report and ask all the speakers to tell us what they are going to do in response to the findings. The Summit will involve amazing speakers, data visualisation, great snacks, discussions and so much more.

Building on the unparalleled success of the Brum Youth Trends Summit in 2018, we’re back on Thurs 24th October 2019 at Town Hall Birmingham, bringing together over 400 people to get first access to the 2019 report.
