Hardcopy or #Hashtag?: young people's vision for a digital parliament

Between 8 September and 10 October, Universities and schools across the country have been partnering up to develop specific digital ideas to engage young people with Parliament. This is a programme of events led by the Political Studies Association and Parliaments and Legislatures Specialist Group for Parliament Week.

So far, 15 universities/groups of people are doing workshops across the country, in preparation for the main event in Portcullis House on 17 November 2014. On that day, a selection of these students will present their ideas to a mixture of young people, parliamentarians and academics at an interactive event led by Digital Democracy Commissioner, actor and film maker, Femi Oyeniran.

The events are being covered on Twitter through the hashtag #PSAPW

Commissioner Meg Hillier MP will also be doing a live Twitter Q&A on digital democracy and what it means to young people as part of Parliament Week.
