Throughout the past few months we have been asking our readers, 15-25 year olds, 'if you had a direct line with the Brexit Negotiating team, what would you like to come out of Brexit?'.
We have since collected numerous responses and on the 17th November, will be launching a booklet showcasing those responses, entitled: Brexit: A Youth Perspective.
What actions do the Government, or Opposition, need to take now that the Referendum is over? Brexit: A Youth Perspective answers some of these questions – and more – from the perspective of young people now having to contend with a post-Brexit Britain.
The main policy areas touched upon in the booklet are the economy, business, migration, the environment, education and social justice.
Fatima Manji from Channel 4 News will be providing guests with a special keynote speech on youth participation in politics after the official launch.
Please arrive at 6.30pm.
Drinks & snacks will be offered to all guests.
There will also be a drinks reception from 7.30pm onwards after the keynote speech in which guests are invited to network. A FREE copy of the booklet will be provided upon arrival.

Richard Brooks, Vice-President, National Union of Students
Richard Brooks has served as the elected NUS Vice President (Union Development) since April 2015. His priorities in NUS include governance reform, student volunteering and societies, a positive reputation for students' unions and building student representation in further education. Richard campaigned enthusiastically for students to vote Remain and has been vocal about the need to address generational divides inflamed by the referendum result.
Prior to this Richard was President of Hull University Union, having enjoyed and been challenged by a series of important developments for the organisation. He describes his love for the city of Hull as “weirdly powerful” and as HUU President Richard campaigned on issues including housing, opportunities and transport.
