Lancashire750

What will your generation's legacy be?

In 2045, it will be 750 years since Lancashire first sent representatives to Parliament, something that continues to be commemorated and celebrated every 27 November on Lancashire Day. How will you shape your region's future?

Lancashire750 convenes a diverse group of leaders, aged 18-25, from across Lancashire to address the question: "What will the legacy of our generation be?" Because after all, they are the generation who will shape Lancashire ahead.
