The challenges facing the UK are unprecedented, and the country needs young people engaged in politics and democracy in order to solve them.
45ForThe45th is tackling the political disillusionment of youth in the UK. Through a bespoke education programme intertwined with the 2016 US Presidential election, we are enabling 45 young people aged 18-25 to learn how to motivate and mobilise young voters.
These young people – the 45ers will learn about political campaigning at all levels, including at the grassroots. They’ll gain an unprecedented insight into the tools, techniques and challenges of engaging young people.
The 45ers will then present a set of recommendations to UK political parties, setting out what must be done in order to engage young people in the political and democratic process here in the UK.
