Sixteen young people have launched their campaigns to become Camden’s next Youth MP.
The candidates, who are aged 13 to 17, will speak at a hustings event at Camden Town Hall on Tuesday 13 March before voting begins the following week, on Monday 19 March.
The newly-elected Youth MP and two new Deputy Youth MPs will be the voice for Camden young people over the next two years.
As well as putting forward the interests of Camden youth in local decision-making, they will have a national role as members of the UK Youth Parliament.
They will also work closely with Camden Youth Council, helping to organise or speak at events such as Shout Out.
Thank you to all the candidates in our Youth MP Election for showing the passion and commitment needed to put themselves forward. Our Youth MP and two Deputy Youth MPs are an important voice for young people, raising the profile of issues that matter to the youth of Camden and helping to shape our policies.
The successful candidates really will be able to make a difference so I hope that all young people across the borough will support this election by casting their votes.
