Youth Focus: North East would like to thank all of the guests who attended the seminar on Thursday 10 November where the barriers to young people’s engagement and education around politics as well as what the role of the youth sector should be was discussed.
Holly Midwinter, a politics student at Newcastle University, was at the seminar and will be researching the the state of play of political education and engagement across sectors working with young people in the North East of England. The final positioning paper will be available by the end of Q1 2017.
There was a real desire in the room to take this discussion further so we are committed to holding another seminar in the New Year.
For those who could not make it to the event on the day, but would still like to be involved in the research and future meetings we would like to speak to you. Please contact [email protected].
