Should young people have the right to stand in local elections?
In this lesson, we will learn about the role of the local council and councillor. We will then consider whether it is important for young people to be able to stand for election to represent the views of other young people of the local area. Lastly, we will develop our speech making skills so that we can express our views clearly and persuasively.
