Make Your Mark - Vote Debate Topics for the Members of Youth Parliament

Friday 3rd October 2014

Update- GYPC (Greenwich Young people’s Council)

GYPC are currently involved in some exciting projects and needs your support. 

Make Your Mark is UK-wide ballot which gives young people aged 11-18 the chance to decide what Members of Youth Parliament should debate and vote on during their sitting in the House of Commons this November.

We are encouraging young people in the borough to vote..

At present GYPC are trying to reach out to as many young people in school in Greenwich to get them involved in Make Your Mark.

As members of UK Youth Parliament representing the Royal Borough of Greenwich, GYPC provide a voice for young people on a national level for young people in Greenwich.

Young people chose from a shortlist of topics on the ballot paper, the top 5 are then debated in the House of Commons by Members of Youth Parliament (MYPs) from across the UK, on 14th November. Following the debate, MYPs vote for two issues to become our national campaigns for year ahead.

The campaigns voted on last year were Votes at 16 also A Curriculum for Life.
