The Big Youth Debate: Should the voting age be lowered to 16?

Join us on the evening of 26th April at a debate hosted by iDebate and MP for Hampstead and Kilburn Tulip Siddiq to listen to the voice of London's youth debate two key issues.

Should the voting age be lowered to 16?

Should the mandatory education participation age be raised to 21?

Our engaging debates will bring youth voices from iDebates World Debate Clubs to Westminster to debate issues that are of direct relevance to them. Would they as 16 or 17 year olds want to have the responsibility to vote? As students in Colleges do they believe they are being sufficiently prepared for the world of work in the 21st Century?
