Event description

Description

Despite the overall vote for Brexit, a majority of under 35s voted to remain in the EU and many have since expressed dismay at the result. How can young people be brought into the discussions about the future of the UK’s role in the world? What can politicians learn from young people? How can policymaking adapt to be more representative? This event will draw on our report published in July, A generation apart: were young people left behind by the EU referendum?

‘THE POLICY FACTOR!’ is a talent show-style policy debate that makes the most of audio-visual tools to engage with politicians, policy experts, commentators and audiences both within and beyond the fringe. Each interactive event will explore a positive policy idea for the next Parliament, in the style of an ‘audition’. Responding to the proposal, a ‘judging panel’ will be comprised of individuals representing a variety of views, for example the party, the press, or the people.

The big idea? To find new talent to challenge ‘politics-as-usual’. 

Speakers:
o Ben Howlett MP (TBC)
o Katy Owen, Programme Manager, CoVi
o Charles Grant, Director, Centre for European Reform
o Jim Waterson, Political Editor, Buzzfeed
o Nigel Fletcher, Head of Research, Bright Blue
