The Speak Up, Speak Out project is a citywide push led by youth and young adults to get younger voices sharing their ideas for the future of Ripon. It is part of the wider Ripon Renewal 2035 iniative led by Ripon City and Harrogate Borough Council, which is looking to create a new City Masterplan after hearing from the community about what is wanted for the future coming out of Covid19. The Speak Up Speak Out project is trying to ensure the next generation have an equal say in what the city should be working towards, and therefore we want as many younger voices as possible to get involved!
