Simon Hamilton

It will be a better future when... we really listen to eachother, learn from past mistakes, and there is real social justice that includes all demographics
Be patient and see the future as positive

Mahaylia Simone Irish

It will be a better future when... we can transform these conversations we are having into physcial, concrete experiences
we need to encourage more life experiences

David Keech

It will be a better future when... we teach the idea of not judging other people on the national curriculum
music is a conversation

Xianthe Nichol

It will be a better future when... we start to consider more diverse perspectives when making key decisions
we need to introduce diversity in decision making... more perspectives mean more input

Gurvinder Khurana

It will be a better future when... we start to implement all the things that we spend many, many hours thinking about
we have to trail-blaze and push the agenda so those coming up behind us don't have to have the same fight

Aqilah Amran

It will be a better future when... everyone is to be treated equally, not because of their skin colour, gender or religion, and there is no racial injustice or division
its the attitude of people that create blockers

Phil Nutley

It will be a better future when... we can see and feel a bit better and have more of these intergenerational conversations
we need to go back to human traits

Chris Chowen

It (might) be a better future when... we have a more seamless transition between the virtual and reality
tech innovation will carry is forward... but we need to combine technologists with the artists

Pippa Nissen

It will be a better future when... we enjoy difference and respect everybody
enjoy the unusual voices that come to the fore

Amy Kempa

It will be a better future when... the actions and choices we are making now only positively benefit and enable the lives of those to come
sustainability should be at the forefront of everything

William Knight

It will be a better future when... a vision is set and we can bring people behind that vision
we are bursting to get to a better place

Lucy Swift

It will be a better future when... we approach listening across all diversities, cultures and backgrounds
we need to acknowledge the difference between digital and physical connection
