    Make your Mark!

    by Irfan Patel -

    We are one of the colleges, youth groups and partner organisations, who have signed up to this years’ campaign. Make Your Mark is an opportunity for 11-18 year olds across the UK to have their say and begin their democratic journey by voting on the policies they want to introduce or change. This is an opportunity for our students to influence decision makers who can make a real difference on the issues that matter to them. Make Your Mark is one of the most important and influential ways young people can take part in a democratic process.

    The issues voted as most important will be the focus of the UK Youth Parliament’s 2021 campaigns. Members of Youth Parliament will campaign to influence UK Parliament and their local representatives, ensuring that the views of young people are listened to by decision-makers.

    The virtual ballot paper, asks 11-18 year olds to vote on one UK-wide topic and one local topic that is most important to them. Online voting closes on 30th November and is solely through the UK Parliament Week website

    take a look - the voting link is:
