Supporting National Democracy Week


Every young person has the right to learn about democracy and understand how they can make positive change in their local communities and beyond. That’s why we’re pleased to support the launch of National Democracy Week (2nd-8th July 2018). The week-long celebration of democracy provides an opportunity to reflect on the progress made and champion future democratic participation in this historic centenary year of suffrage where some women won the right to vote.

The National Democracy Week Council is led by Minister for the Constitution Chloe Smith MP, and along with a range of sector partners, including UK Youth and the Cabinet Office.

Get involved

To celebrate the week, our young representatives in UK Youth Voice have planned a series of events and activities for our network to get involved in.

On Wednesday 4th July, we’re inviting young people from across our network to join us in the Houses of Parliament for an afternoon of learning, fun and the opportunity to have your voices heard by MPs and Lords.

If you’re interested in supporting the event or getting involved then please email

We want to hear from you! During 2nd- 8th July, we’ll be sharing updates from across our network and beyond – tweet us @UKYouth to be involved.
