What is the Big Society?
The Big Society can be interpreted in many different ways and with no one size fits all answer, it’s time for young people to decide what your Big Society is!
The government indicated that the Big Society is communities feeling empowered to solve problems in their neighbourhood, having the freedom to influence and discuss topics that matter to them, and a more local approach to social action and responsibility.
David Cameron says he wants this government to be the first in a generation to leave office with much less power than it started with. Big Society’s Big Mouth has been created to give young people a space and some power to discuss what really matters to them. Big Society needs young people to shape it, so tell us what you want from your Big Society.
