The Week - Junior - - All About The Uk Youth Parliament -

On 10 Novem­ber, the UK Youth Par­lia­ment will hold its ninth an­nual sit­ting in the House of Com­mons Cham­ber. These are some of the is­sues that mem­bers will de­bate:

A cur­ricu­lum to pre­pare young peo­ple for life. Schools should cover top­ics in­clud­ing fi­nance, pol­i­tics and re­la­tion­ships in the cur­ricu­lum. Trans­port. Make pub­lic trans­port cheaper, bet­ter and ac­ces­si­ble for all.

Work-ex­pe­ri­ence hubs for 11 to 18-year-olds. The Gov­ern­ment should cre­ate an on­line space to help young peo­ple find work ex­pe­ri­ence. Votes at 16. Give 16 and 17-year-olds the right to vote in all elec­tions/ref­er­en­dums.

Make sure young peo­ple are treated fairly, what­ever their be­liefs or val­ues may be.

At the end of the de­bate, Mem­bers of the Youth Par­lia­ment will vote to de­cide which two of these is­sues they will cam­paign on in 2018.
