The Yorkshire Society is launching its ‘Big Yorkshire Conversation’ in what it hopes will be a wide-ranging discussion about the future of the region.

The Big Yorkshire Conversation is allowing the people of Yorkshire to provide input into how the county should be defined, to take stock of where it is now and to consider all the options for the future of the region moving forward.

Phil Bell, chief executive of the Yorkshire Society, said: “The current debate about Yorkshire’s future has been limited to discussions behind closed doors, between local and central Government, meaning that vast majority of Yorkshire people have had no say in their future.

“We, in The Yorkshire Society, believe this is such a landmark moment in the development of Yorkshire that it deserves wider consideration.

“It’s also an opportunity to pause and think about Yorkshire. How do we define Yorkshire identity and the sense of Yorkshireness?

“How do these things feed into the devolution and levelling up agendas? And how can they be put to best use for the benefit of everyone?”
