The FutureVote - Inventing New Ways to Engage Young People in Politics

Newsroom Café
An exciting workshop that will create powerful new ways of getting more young people engaged in politics. Only 39% of 18-24 year olds voted in the last General Election and so this age group has less of a voice than it could have in major political decisions. So FutureVote brings together a diverse group of thirty 15-16 year olds with designers and media mentors to co-create fresh ideas to change this situation. In the workshop, mixed groups will brainstorm ideas, testing them out and pitching them to a media panel.

The FutureVote Showcase

#AWEurope Underground
Fresh from an all day workshop, our diverse and talented selection of 15-16 year olds will showcase new ways of getting more young people engaged in politics. News UK, The Advertising Association and The Ideas Foundation have set out to change this situation and at the same time make the case for including a much wider range of people to our media industry. (Only 39% of 18-24 year olds voted in the last General Election and so this age group has less of a voice than it could have in major political decisions).
