The British Youth Council are working with the Electoral Commission and the National Union of Students to launch a new viral campaign alongside a number of other organisations in a bid to get remaining 3 in 10 students and young people registered to vote ahead of the General Election in May.
The British Youth Council, the national youth-led charity who campaigns for votes at 16, commissioned YouGov to ask about voting intentions of those aged 16-24. Whilst this put Labour ahead with both groups, the younger group prefer the Conservatives to both the Green Party and UKIP in contrast to the 18-24 year olds.
Gold School Democracy Award have been awarded to St Pius X College, Lurgan College and Thornhill College, by the British Youth Council in recognition of their high turnout of students in this year’s UK Youth Parliament Northern Ireland elections.
Each month we invite youth representatives, including Members of Youth Parliament (MYPs), Deputy Members of Youth Parliament (DMYPs), Youth Councillors, Young Mayors and Deputy Young Mayors to share their stories of the positive activities they have been engaging in recently.
