Citizenship - Politics: love it or hate it

28th November 2008 at 00:00

The UK Government wants to know whether young people are allergic to politics.

To find out, it is calling on youngsters to share their views via the Hansard Society's online forum for 11 to 18 year-olds, HeadsUp. They will be asked to explore what citizenship and politics mean to them; how young people are involved in their communities; and whether having the vote at 16 is a good idea. The consultation will run until December 5.
