Today, young people have opportunities to participate in community life and politics in many different ways. But it hasn’t always been like this. In what ways are young people finding their voice within the current political system, how has the digital age impacted this, and how effective are these new methods in influencing change?
This Game Changers Conversation will delve into the issues close to young people’s hearts, and the ways that they get their voices and messages heard.
