Commonwealth Youth Parliament next week

Next week sees London play host to the Commonwealth Youth Parliament, 6-10 September 2011. Here’s a blurb from the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (UK), for all interested journalists.. – Will

“Working with the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) Secretariat, CPA UK is proud to be hosting the fourth CYP in this, the centennial year of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, as part of its commitment to engaging the younger generation in politics, parliament and the Commonwealth.

Each CPA legislature has had the opportunity to nominate two participants, and nearly 100 participants in the age range 18-29 will be taking part; an equal gender balance is a key objective for the event.

The week will culminate in a keynote debate on climate change, taking place in the House of Lords Chamber on Friday 9 September. This will be only the fifth time that the chamber will be used for anything other than official business, and a landmark first time that Members of the House of Commons will be allowed to sit on the Red Benches.

As well as the 100 or so young parliamentarians from around the Commonwealth, CPA is working closely with the UK Parliament’s Parliamentary Outreach Team to invite an additional group of UK-based Commonwealth Diaspora who will join in the keynote debate, as well as youth representatives of the World Bank Institute.”
