This year’s Make Your Mark campaign has seen over 1.1 million young people take part, making it one of the largest youth consultations of its kind in UK history, with 1 in 5 of all young people aged 11-18 taking part. The Make Your Mark ballot is supported by Local Authorities, schools, Parliament, The British Youth Council and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. It gives young people across the country a say on what is to be debated on the green benches of the House of Commons by Members of Youth Parliament.
12,399 young people cast their votes in Barnet and the top issue was:
Protect the Environment
We believe that we have a responsibility to protect the environment from the effects of climate change for the next generation; and that the Government should look towards carbon neutral alternatives.
How you can get involved
You can get involved in many ways, either through our existing forums, through your school and youth group or becoming a Make Your Mark champion. Voting can take place with physical ballot papers, school tally sheets or online.
