The Cornwall and Isle of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) have been commissioned to consult with young people regarding their Strategic Economic Plan for Cornwall.

At the consultation event, students at Liskeard School and Community College and three other schools in Cornwall had the opportunity to put forward their ideas regarding the future of Cornwall and their part in it.  They met with representatives from Cornish businesses and discussed economic decisions and priorities, also sharing their aspirations for their lives and careers in Cornwall to 2030 and beyond.  

The key issues that were discussed were: what our students value about where they live, what’s important to them for a good life – now, and in 2030 (a balance of social, economic and environmental factors) i.e. defining success for themselves and also looking at a definition of success/ambition for Cornwall to 2030 and what is required to achieve that ambition.

Liskeard students played a major role in these discussions, getting involved from the start and representing the school brilliantly. 

Sam Kendall, Education Manager at The Eden Project said "Please pass my thanks to your young people. They were pretty much perfect. Engaged and passionate and thoughtful and wise and funny. What a treat to spend the day with them".
