Five Londoners on the cusp of adulthood come together to talk gentrification, pollution and the future of navigating the city as a young woman. Everything is just so fucking expensive here. Even when we think of leaving to find greener and cheaper pastures, we think of those places only in terms of their proximity and resemblance to London, their infrastructure, transport, and fun.
Still, for others, it appears the process of an exodus is beginning. Reuters writes about some Hong Kong residents purchasing houses and apartments in and just outside the capital to lease for income in Britain. The real estate landscape of London might be about to become even more casino-like. But amongst these quite boring financial and political considerations, the concerns and priorities of young, urban city dwellers are absent from headlines.
With their streets and homes being surveyed for how they might best serve the interests of financial workers and the super-rich, the everyday rituals and aspirations of youth who are tied to London are marginalised, and youth feel more and more alienated from the place they call home. As part of A Future Worldwe sought to rival this by speaking to 5 London teenage girls and exploring the future of city-living through their eyes, their dreams, and their anxieties. Literally in the 5 years that I went to that school I noticed a dramatic change, especially because I had older siblings that went there.
Even just little things like the 5 years that I went to the main high street, just little pop ups like the coffee shop. Local teen new london wana fuck lunch got more and more expensive. Things like that. And also the conversation around uni. Despite me not having to pay for accommodation, just lunch, travelling, that sort of stuff, is super, super expensive.
Where are we gonna live? How are we gonna afford it? You have to work 10x harder to get the highest paying job to be able to live here. They said how they feel like strangers walking around their area. And it seems a lot of people did that during lockdown, just moved. I know a lot of people on my street who moved, and I think they moved outside of London because they realised London is a bit too much. Even little things like your face mask at the end of the day, how disgusting it is.
I feel like stories like Ella Kissi-Debrah nine-year-old from South London whose cause of death was air pollution in emphasises how important it is. That was the main reason they moved, how bad it was getting. Do I really want that in my lungs? I barely eat meat! Maybe pollution is gonna push our generation out. I want to go out and drink.
But I definitely think mini places will be popping up, like pop-up clubs maybe will be a thing. That part of it is gonna be a pain in the ass. So I do need that — not the journey, but just the leaving my house. It took me an hour and a half to travel, but by car it was like 25 minutes. So it really put me off. You have to pay so much firstly to buy your car, road tax, insurance, MOT, congestion charge. Cycling is so scary because I feel like, God forbid, I will get run over. I think a lot of girls are gonna miss that. Being protected against people sneezing and talking.
Even just the cold, I like the masks. So some of that I hope will stay. And I think a lot of girls are gonna miss that. Dazed media sites.
