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.
