Politics and Schools, how to get more young people involved
Wednesday, 14 October 2015 from 18:00 to 20:00 (BST)
More and more young people in Britain are becoming interested in politics, yet are being halted from getting involved by one simple problem… they don’t know how to.
Some of the youngest politicians are coming together to discuss why they got involved in politics, what drove them to pursue a career in it and how they think we, as a society, can get more young people involved in political discussion. Join us in parliament on the 14th October to discuss how we can get the next generation more interested and involved in Politics!

The aim of the Crick Centre is to study and promote the public understanding of politics (broadly defined) in a manner that cultivates debate and encourages engaged citizenship around the world.
It therefore seeks to close the gap that has arguably emerged not just between politicians and the public but also between academe and society more broadly.
Shout Out UK is an independent news network that, via journalism, film and events, aims to show young people that politics has a direct impact on everything you do in life, with the aim of lowering political apathy among the next generation.
Since our launch in July 2012, we have become one of Britain’s fastest growing alternative and independent news platforms, bolstering one of the largest network of young political, cultural and creative writers from all over the globe.
