Catch21 Productions has produced ‘Why Vote?’ for Parliament Week 2012. Young people created the film, and it focuses on why it is important for the younger generation to vote and have an interest in politics.
Parliament Week took place between 19 to 25 November and is an annual series of events and activities, co-ordinated by the House of Commons and House of Lords, which aim to raise awareness of Parliament and encourage people to engage with the UK’s democratic system and its institutions.
Within the film, there are appearances from members of the Youth Parliament and politicians including Tim Noughton MP and Lisa Nandy MP.
So have a look it may just change your opinion on voting if you haven’t started yet.
