Are you in your 20s or 30s? Feeling disconnected from politics, but want to make a difference?
Join us for an informal ‘Parliament Week 2014’ event and meet experts from around the North East who have first-hand involvement with politics and find out:
- How politics works in the UK: what it means and what’s involved
- Where politics and participation have made a difference and why engaging matters
- Different ways you can get involved: pick what suits you best and go for it
Taking part in the discussion are:
- Mark Denten, Political Reporter BBC Look North
- Colin Hutchinson, Forward Assist
- Anne Toms, Carillion PLC
- Jennifer Jeffes, Durham University
- Daniel Wood, Houses of Parliament Outreach Service
Avoiding the things that can make people switch off from politics – jargon, rhetoric and party politics – this free event intends to spark your interest as our experts share their unique insights and answer your questions on politics and participation.
Teas, coffees and sandwiches will be provided free of charge. Other refreshments can be purchased from the bar.
