Young people have a right to participate in democracy.

Decisions made by governments today affect the young people of today and yet they have no say in who gets to govern.

  • Reason believes in the fostering of connections between young people and the processes of parliament and government through initiatives such as formal Youth Advisory boards. 
  • Reason calls for the establishment of a national approach to civics and political literacy in schools.
  • Reason supports non-compulsory voting rights for young people aged 16 and 17.
