Host: Mr Greg Hands, MP for Fulham and Chelsea
This is an interactive panel/audience debate dedicated to Youth in Democracy, organised by Pro Art & Co and the World Peace and Prosperity Foundation, for the Parliament Week 2014. It will discuss social, cultural and political aspects of young people’s involvement as active citizens in local communities and wider into British society.
Cultural democracy is a concept, which concerns all people and structures and young people’s proactive commitment is instrumental in implementing basic human rights to participate, create and enjoy cultural diversity around the world. It also enhances access to multicultural sphere of activities. The audience will contribute with their views on relevant issues of importance and policies. We hope that sincere and free dialogue will explore what is closest to young people’s hearts, their cultural individuality and their role in active cultural affairs and politics on both local and governmental levels. It will also examine Youth’s European and International presence and the impact of their involvement in diverse cultural projects.
