Millennials are taking over the world! This event is all about moving beyond the stereotypes and celebrating young leaders.

The MILLENNIFEST programme of inspirational talks, skills masterclasses and policy workshops will explore what the future workforce will look like, and what this means for skills, education, and public leadership. We’ll hear from people with real experience of what it takes to be a talented activist, entrepreneur or social leader.

🔭 11:00-12:00 | Talent! Visions for the future

What talents do millennials have and how can we mobilise them to shape the future? This session will feature lightning talks from national politicians, entrepreneurs and young leaders on how they envision “talent”. We’ll be talking labour markets, public life, politics and how we can build an inclusive society.

🔧 12:00-13:00 | Policy Hackathon: Making the most of millennial talent

These breakout round-tables will focus in on specific challenges and opportunities to make the most of #futuretalent. Facilitated by policy buffs and subject experts, each group will craft a creative policy proposal which will be presented as policy pitches in THE POLICY FACTOR! at 2.30pm.

Topics include (subject to change):

  • Beating the robots: Human talent in the age of automation
  • Jobs and skills in the low carbon economy
  • Making parity a reality: Gender equality in the workforce
  • Talent and the future of civil society
  • Migrant talent: Making the most of a global workforce
  • Portfolio working, the gig economy and flexi-jobs
  • Lifting up talent in local communities

👉 13:30-14:30 | Lunch and Learn skills masterclasses

Designed to give you the know-how and techniques you need to make your mark in the workplace, social activism, politics and beyond. Our practical, hands-on skills masterclasses are hosted by our expert partners and guest speakers.

Topics include (subject to change):

  • How to set up a social enterprise
  • How to master public speaking
  • How to influence policy change
  • How to empower through creativity

🌠14:30-16:00 | THE POLICY FACTOR! Making the most of millennial talent

Drawing on Common Vision’s well-known flagship talent show-style format, we’ll be asking a panel of expert judges and speakers the big questions about #futuretalent. Judges will present their vision for millennial talent and then offer constructive feedback on policy pitches from the Hackathon. Think Dragon’s Den but for policy.

🔮 16:00-17:00 | Panel Predictions: The future of political talent

What do the skills, interests and talents of the millennial generation mean for the future of politics? What do young voters expect of current and future politicians? How are emerging technologies and social trends changing the way we ‘do’ politics and engage with people in power?

Join us in being a part of something special on Saturday 7th September.
