Brexit? Tuition Fees? The Voting Age? What are young people’s priorities in the run-up to the 2017 general election?
Young people will get the chance to tell politicians what they care about and what is important to them at a debate later this month, organised by MAP in partnership with OPEN. The Young People’s Election Debate takes place on Tuesday 30 May from 6pm-8.30pm at OPEN, 20 Bank Plain Norwich. Richard Bearman (Green Party), Norman Lamb (Liberal Democrats), Clive Lewis (The Labour Party) and Chloe Smith (Conservative Party) will form the panel, with Jonathan Wills, presenter of ITV’s Anglia Tonight, chairing the debate.
“This is a real opportunity for young people to air their views and for politicians to hear what young people care about,” explains Paul Webb, MAP’s Youth Work Services Manager, adding: ‘It is vital to give young people a voice in society and for those in positions of power to listen to what they have to say.’
This is a FREE but ticketed event. Young people and groups can sign up to take part and submit a question for the panel via Eventbrite .
