Our Big Conversation

'Our Big Conversation' is your chance to get involved in a city-wide discussion, helping the city get to grips with some of the biggest challenges facing us:

  • carbon reduction
  • future transport priorities
  • York’s economy

How we address these core strategies will shape life in York for at least the next decade; the way we make our city greener, the way we move around, and how we work...

Get involved in Our Big Conversation

We want to hear more voices than ever before. We're building networks, and inclusive approaches, to make sure all of York's communities have a say, including the disabled community, children and young people, older people, students, black and minority ethnic people, and the LGBTQ community.

We'll share what you're telling us, so you know what other people in the city think, and why we make decisions.

To get involved, take part in:

  • the latest surveys, polls and consultations
  • live sessions with leaders
  • community conversations with local interest groups and networks
  • workshops about different themes
  • masterclasses to learn more about the economy, transport or carbon reduction

My City Centre

Your input in shaping the My City Centre conversation will inform the drafting of a new city centre vision. Find out more about the My City Centre York vision.
