Event Details

This is a party political broadcast by … the next generation

Co-designed by the NI Open Government Network and the NEETs Forum, this session will explore and challenge the political party manifesto making process.

Through a series of interactive democracy games, young people from across Northern Ireland will have the opportunity to

  • Create their own political party – devise the name and key messages
  • Produce their Political Party Manifesto – choosing and developing policies in the areas of education, health, employment, transport, justice, poverty, environment, economy and Brexit
  • Launch their Party’s Campaign and debate issues and values with rival representatives at a party political hustings session
  • Vote for the political party that best represents their priorities and principles
  • Have some serious fun! 

This event is open to all, but aimed at young people, aged 16-24. 

About the Unusual Suspects Festival: After the success of two festivals in London and in Glasgow, we are hosting the Unusual Suspects Festival again this year in Northern Ireland on October 12- 14, 2016. 3 days, 2 cities, 15+ events, 40+ organisations all exploring what happens when social innovation meets collaboration and how together we can meet some of society's most pressing challenges. The Festival brings together the 'unusual suspects' from across Northern Ireland and the world, people who wouldn't normally cross paths, to explore how we can work together in new and different ways to create real social change.
