    Recently i've been tasked with the job of getting more young people involved in my local Labour Party. This includes current members and also those who are not members.

    I'd be interested to know any of your thoughts on ways to get young people to really engage with politics. I'm planning on holding an event in the summer but the format of this is something I am undecided on.

    Any opinions you may have would be really appreciated. It's not just for Labour either, i just think that more needs to be done to get young people involved in politics so that our opinions will be listened to more by the government etc.

    How politics affects us all
