Charlotte Gerade and Joe Porter on how to make young voices heard

Nov 01, 2016, 07:30 AM

A Remainer and a Leaver explain how they overcame their differences to make sure the interests of young people will be represented in the Brexit negotiations. Only 43% of 18-24 year olds voted in the 2015 general election. In June’s EU Referendum, that was up to 64%. Young people are becoming more engaged with politics and in this episode Tim and Jen caught up with two leading the charge, Charlotte Gerade and Joe Porter. The pair are two of the co-leaders of lobby group Undivided, which is collating the biggest concerns from 1,000,000 13-30 year olds across the country to come up with a 10-point manifesto to take to parliament.
