Think your voice isn't heard? Think something isn't working? Know what needs to be changed?
Join us for an exciting debate on the future of Birmingham, as told by you, the city’s residents.
You have the chance to hear the proposals of four fantastic speakers - each of whom has extensive experience living and/or working in the city - put your questions to them and get your views on the city heard (or just listen!).
The event will be filmed and shown in schools across the West Midlands in the weeks following the event. The event will also form part of a documentary film about the city.
