About the event

This workshop is designed to enhance rangatahi's knowledge of different forms of civic participation (both parliamentary interaction and local level leadership) so that they can either start their political participation journey or take their next step.

This workshop is for ages 13 to 24. We will cover:

*Breaking down what happened after an election (How your vote translated into people in parliament)

*Stats about what youth participation is like currently and the potential for the power of collective youth voice

*Some info from parliamentary services, about parliamen'ts functions and how to interact with them

*Examples of Community-level forms of political participation that often feel more achievable than just engaging with parliament straight off the bat.

There will be time to hang out and to do the online virtual tour of Parliament as well as look at some resources.

Snacks provided. No cost. See you there!
