You can only vote in this election if you’re 18. That means that around two million 16 and 17-year-olds will be denied the chance to have their say – one that could have a significant impact on their future thanks to key issues like climate change.
For ‘The Future Debate’, UKSCN and VICE brought together student representatives from Labour, the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats to face off on their party’s stance around the issues that matter most to under 18’s.
2:36 Youth Vote: Should 16 and 17-year-olds be able to vote?
11:05 Climate: Which party has the most credible plan for dealing with the Climate Crisis?
24:26 Education: Should private schools be abolished?
UKSCN is a group of mostly under 18s who strike from school to protest the government’s lack of action on the climate crisis. Today they launch a campaign to demand voting rights for 16 and 17-year-olds, from whichever new government will take office on December 12th.
