Are you interested in Brexit, concerned in how it might affect you, and keen to discuss your own views and priorities?

From the impact of Brexit on every day practical concerns about jobs, travel, and public services, to broader social and economic issues such as the environment, human rights and international trade, Covi want to discuss the priorities that matter to you, regardless of the way you voted in the referendum or whether you voted at all.

Covi are hosting a series of workshops to engage with millennials across the UK as part of think tank Common Vision’s #BREXITWATCH project. These discussions will feed into research and analysis on what young people want to see from the Brexit negotiations, and presented to the Government and other politicians and decision makers, in the run-up to the June 2017 General Election and beyond.

The next event is in Bristol, and open to any young person aged 16 to 30(ish).

The event is free to attend (with free food!)
