Year 10 Citizenship students discuss digital democracy with Commissioner Femi Oyeniran

Femi Oyeniran chaired a discussion with Year 10 Citizenship students on Friday 18 July 2014.

The Digital Democracy Commission Team took the students on a tour of the building and discussed how Parliament worked. This was then followed by a 45 minute session with Commissioner Femi on Parliament's communications with young people.

Key points from discussion:

  • Young people care about issues, not politics.
  • Social media, short films and visits to schools are key for MPs and Parliament to communicate with young people.
  • Party manefestos should be easier to understand.
