This July, I am launching a politics summer school for young people in my constituency.
I am consistently impressed by the young people who contact me and struck by their passion for the climate, social justice and education. This summer school is an offer to those who want to understand more about how politics works and how to influence it – an opportunity to learn, debate and ask questions.
The week-long programme is aimed at young people aged 16 and over who want to make a difference. There will be sessions from climate activists, MPs and journalists, taking a look at politics on the local and national level, as well as environmental campaigning and communication.
You don’t need to take politics at school or be a climate expert to get involved; the most important thing is enthusiasm! The workshops and activities will help you understand your influence and how to campaign for change.
If you are keen to find out more about the programme, fill out our online form here to express your interest and be the first to hear when applications open this spring.
