On the 17th of November at the Frontline Club in London, Shout Out UK will be launching Brexit: A Youth Perspective.
Fatima Manji from Channel 4 News will be providing guests with a special keynote speech on youth participation in politics after the official launch.
Brexit: A Youth Perspective consists of various policy proposals and suggestions, submitted by young people between the ages of 15-25, and sourced through Shout Out UK’s youth readership, in light of Brexit.
What should Brexit look like? What actions do the Government, or Opposition, need to take now that the Referendum is over? Brexit: A Youth Perspective answers some of these questions – and more – from the perspective of young people now having to contend with a post-Brexit Britain.
The main policy areas touched upon in the booklet are the economy, business, migration, the environment, education and social justice.
Matteo Bergamini, CEO and Founder of Shout OUK, says: ‘Regardless of how you voted, Brexit is happening. It is time we listen to the next generation and include it in this very vital conversation, the negotiation to leave the EU.
Politics is an eternal struggle to improve the society we live in and if we fail to engage and listen to the next generation, we risk losing everything humanity has spent decades fighting and struggling to create’.
