An editor has pledged to give young people more of a voice after being “challenged” to do so.
The EDP is asking readers aged between 11 and 25 to fill out a survey on subjects include education, mental health, job prospects, homelife, transport and the environment for the project.
The responses, and those given at the debate, will shape part of a special edition of the EDP.
The edition will feature opinion pieces as well as news features on some of the big issues young people are facing.
David, pictured, said: “Our newspapers and websites have, quite rightly, been challenged recently to give more of a voice to young people and the issues they face and this is one outcome of that.
“Going forward I’m very keen to give young people more of a voice in our papers and on our websites and welcome ideas and submissions from people to help us do that.”
