Members of the Votes at 16 Coalition are holding events to give young people a say at the Liberal Democrat, Labour and Conservative Party Conferences this autumn.

At the series of ‘What’s Youth Got to Do with It’ events you can get directly in touch with decision makers through interactive panel debates where you will get the chance to:

• Voice your opinions on the issues that matter to you

• Hear what the panel of politicians, reporters and young people have to say in response

• Vote interactively to give instant feedback on what they said

These free events are outside of the secure zone at party conferences so you will not need to pay for a conference pass.

This event is being held on Sunday 18th September from 6.30-9pm at the IET Birmingham. Panelists will include Simon Hughes MP, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats, a speaker from Liberal Youth and a young representative from the British Youth Council.
