Kemi Badenoch MP is inviting everyone across the Saffron Walden constituency to get involved in UK Parliament Week and join a UK-wide conversation about our democracy, people power and making change happen.
UK Parliament Week is an annual festival taking place from 1-7 November, that engages people from across the UK with their UK Parliament, explores what it means to them and empowers them to get involved.
This year marks ten years of UK Parliament Week. It is a great opportunity to be part of a thriving democracy and look ahead to the next 10 years, thinking about what issues are important to you and how you can work with UK Parliament to bring about change. Community groups, local organisations and schools representing every constituency across the United Kingdom have already signed up to be part of the conversation.
Mrs Badenoch said: “I am determined to ensure that young people and our voters understand how vital their participation is in our democracy, and I’m pleased to see so many local organisations, groups and schools taking part have already signed up to take part in UK Parliament Week 2020.”
“Whilst I regularly visit schools across the constituency, I have sadly been unable to do so due to the current situation. Therefore I am please UK Parliament Week is offering exciting activities to help us learn more about how parliament works and the importance of having your say on issues you care most about.”
Those who sign up for UK Parliament Week will be sent a free kit packed with resources, including a booklet, bunting, a ballot box, a poster, stickers and more, which can be tailored for different organisations.
