Shine in the House of Lords

13 July 2009

On 10 July the House of Lords hosted a unique debate by over 150 young people from across the UK, to mark the leadership and community day of Shine Week, the Department for Children, Schools and Families’ national youth festival celebrating talent.

The event aimed to challenge negative stereotypes about young people and help to bridge the perceived gap between youth issues and Parliament.

The event was broadcast on BBC Parliament on 18 July and a half-hour documentary by the Media Trust, 'Lording It!', following three of the participants and their journey to the Lords, was broadcast on the Community Channel on 28 July.
