About

WHY WE EXIST

We are…

  • Individuals
  • Committed citizens
  • Social entrepreneurs
  • Issue-based
  • Solution-focused
  • “Glass half full” thinkers
  • Champions of best practice, and happy to be challenged ourselves

We are not…

  • Aligned to anyone
  • A political party
  • A government body
  • Afraid to challenge or question things (especially when it’s related to tax payers’ money)

To empower…

Young people to take a stake in society, engage with decision-making and make informed choices as active citizens.

To inspire…

People to become active changemakers: responding to ‘calls to action’ and sharing in the responsibilities, challenges and opportunities of a modern, evolving democracy.

To ensure…

That future generations grow up in a society that embraces diversity and difference; a country where every citizen is inspired to play an active role in democracy, and where everyone works collectively to make ‘-isms’ (classism, racism, ageism, sexism, fascism) things of the past.

Our goal…

To lay the foundations for every 16 year old in Britain, from 2020 onwards, to view political engagement and changemaking as habitual and a rite of passage.

7.4 Million…

16-24 year olds live in the UK. Only half of those are registered to vote, and of those registered and eligible, only 43% turned out to vote in 2015. This means that under a quarter of our youngest citizens are empowered to create change – even though they are the most connected generation that has ever walked the Earth.

If it continues…

And younger citizens continue to not engage, we will see a rise in discontent and increased frustration, making young people vulnerable, more susceptible to radicalism and leading to anti-social behaviour. If they are not politically educated about how to influence decisions that affect their life chances, they will continue to believe that ‘change isn’t possible’.

We can have any kind of politics we want.

To do this, we must engage in numbers, support each other to understand the current system and make the links between the issues we feel passionate about and ‘politics’.

The one we have now is the creation of a small group of people. So lets increase the amount of people who engage and when there is enough of us, we” begin creating a politics you’d be proud to put your name to.
