Panelists answer questions from Glasgow Youth Councillors
Jo joined the panel at a British Youth Council Convention last week, to debate issues affecting the younger generation.
The BYC invited Youth Councillors from around the Glasgow area to attend the one-day Convention, giving young people the opportunity to get together to share ideas, learn how to run their organisations more effectively, and discuss strategies, with a panel of local politicians.
Jo joined Bob Doris MSP, Johann Lamont MSP and Councillor David Meikle on the debating panel, and answered questions ranging from “Are children growing up too quickly?” to “Should the voting age be lowered to sixteen?”.
Commenting, Jo said:
“I was delighted to take part in the Convention. It is always good to see young people get involved in politics, and the British Youth Council provides great opportunities for the younger generation not only to get together and discuss their opinions and ideas, but to be heard. I would love to see even more people take part in these sorts of events in the future and would encourage young people to visit the British Youth Council’s website for more information on how to get involved.”
