Youth Congress Manifesto Powerpoint

Over 250 young people attended the sitting in Stormont and discussed and debated issues of importance to them.

Before the event young people 1500 from across NI competed ‘The Big Youth Survey’ to provide a snapshot of the big issues for young people.

The survey informed workshops and lead to a debate in the Assembly Chamber where young people showed the world how politics here can work.

Feedback was amazing with everyone commenting about the great sense of hope and unity at a time where Stormont lies empty.

Its time to pass the baton of power to our younger generations. Its time to let youth lead. Its time for a Youth Assembly.

The Youth Forum have taken the decision that we can wait no longer. We will work to set up a Youth Assembly for ourselves. We have waited for too long and lobbied for over 12 years – but to no avail.

We will launch our plans for a Youth Assembly in Autumn 2018 when we plan to host a big Youth Festival.
