Speakers for Schools Live: ‘Who Cares About Politics?’ – 2 March, 11am

Join us for our live-streamed General Election panel debate 11:00am-12:00pm on Monday 2 March.

Hosted by TV broadcaster Rick Edwards and joined by figures from Facebook, Change.org, the BBC and May2015.com, this will be a lively conversation with students streamed out to classrooms across the UK to explore what the next generation really think about voting, democracy and the political system today.

From text voting to MPs engaging young people, the panel will discuss the changes that young people want to see in British politics – answering questions from the live student audience and viewers watching the event online.
