UKYP Manifesto 2016

About the campaign


The UK Youth Parliament Manifesto tackles a wide range of topics affecting young people, from public transport to education for life, once again proving that today’s generation of young people are far from apathetic about the world they live in. The aim of the manifesto is to inform and influence local and national decision makers, particularly those deciding their manifestos in political parties.
It was created by young people, locally elected to represent the views of their peers, and is re-drafted and approved by Members of Youth Parliament every year at our Annual Sitting. MYPs are then balloted to choose a shortlist of campaigns from the manifesto that is put to the public ‘youth’ vote to determine what we should debate in a House of Commons sitting to decide our national campaign.
