Published 29 July 2022 at 12:01am

South Yorkshire’s Mayor Oliver Coppard will be taking questions from young people in the first Mayor’s Question Time.  

People aged between 14 – 24 are invited to come to University Centre Rotherham next Wednesday (August 3rd) to quiz the Mayor on issues important to them, from public transport to the climate crisis to skills and jobs.  

South Yorkshire’s Mayor Oliver Coppard said, ‘I want young people in South Yorkshire to feel able to make their voice heard and play a part in the decisions that will shape their future.  

“When I became South Yorkshire’s Mayor, I promised to do politics differently, and part of that is being transparent and accountable and having conversations with our communities about the region we want to become.  

“Whether you want to know more about what I do, why I’m making the decisions I’m making or just tell me about the issues that matter to you right now, then sign up for Mayor’s Question Time.” 


Anyone in South Yorkshire aged between 14-24 is invited to sign up and submit their question in advance.  

There will be food and refreshments, and everyone who attends will get a free South Yorkshire travel day pass to use anytime they like.  

Registrations are open now.
