We are currently working through the 300+ responses we have received to define the conversation we need, but as we're sure you will understand, we are postponing the public launch event we'd planned until a more appropriate time.

In the coming weeks, as things become clearer, we will start to re-organise this broadcast event and seek further input from residents of Cornwall.


Join the conversation

We are starting a new conversation that questions what future Cornwall looks like, it's our biggest-ever listening project. 

Called “The Cornwall We Want” it starts this month and aims to gather the opinions and ideas of people across Cornwall - young and old and from all sorts of different backgrounds - to help set goals for 2050 that everyone can unite behind. 

The campaign will begin with a debate at Falmouth University’s Tremough campus on the evening of March 23rd, featuring Cornwall Council leader Julian German, and deputy leader Adam Paynter.

They’ll be inviting views from a live studio audience and offering their own thoughts on the future of Cornwall. Your thoughts will also be part of the conversation.

Councillor German said: “We all know Cornwall faces challenges in the future – but there are also great opportunities. 

“That’s why we want to hear your ideas about how we can work together to agree the best future for Cornwall, for our children and grandchildren. We want to understand your hopes and aspirations for the future of Cornwall, because everyone has a role to play in creating the Cornwall we want for future generations.” 

If you have a question, or you’d like to highlight an issue you feel is important, fill out the form on the link at the top of the page and and answer a couple of simple questions.
