There are lots of different, sometimes competing, demands for land. We want to ensure the views of young people help shape future land use policies. This survey is open to any young person living, studying or working in the countryside; and any young person who would like to live or work in a rural area. We’d be very grateful if you could spare a few minutes to answer some short questions.
