Scottish Youth Parliament 2021-26 Manifesto

Date: 28th May 2020
Category: General principles, General measures of implementation


Closing date: 12th October 2020

This consultation will directly shape Scottish Youth Parliament work over the next five years and inform Scotland’s political parties on what changes young people would like to see in the next Scottish Parliamentary term. 

Young people aged 12-25 who live in Scotland will be asked to share their opinion on a range of statements, covering topics such climate change, when the school day should start and how the Scottish Government should protect the futures of young people in the aftermath of COVID-19.

These topics have been selected by Scottish Youth Parliament’s Conveners Group after consultation with a wide range of young people and youth organisations. All statements which receive over 50% agreement will become official Scottish Youth Parliament policy and inform their work.

Organisations are encouraged to share this survey on social media using the hashtag #FromScotlandsYoungPeople.
