Which issues will Members of the Youth Parliament debate?
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.
