Local Election Youth Hustings

On Tuesday 24 April 2018 from 4pm to 5pm we will be hosting a digital youth hustings event, which will give local youngsters a chance to ask local political party representatives their biggest questions ahead of the Local Election on May 3.

 

It's a great opportunity for young people to get to know the policies of the main political parties, create an opportunity for children and young people to question representatives of local politicians, give young people a platform to raise local issues directly to political decision makers and motivate first time voters to get to the ballot box.

 

If you would like to be part of the audience or volunteer, please contact James Hughes on 07809 342 942 or email james.hughes@communitybarnet.org.uk.
