What’s UK Parliament Week?
UK Parliament Week (UKPW) is a celebration of people power and it is an opportunity to all young people across the UK to get involved. You’ll get a kit that helps you get informed about your UK Parliament, take action and make an impact on the issues you care about.
Last year almost 1 million people took part in every nation and region of the UK, and countries all over the world.
We’re encouraging our members to take part!
What’s in it for you?
When you sign up, UK Parliament will post you a free kit packed which includes: an activity booklet, a ballot box, some seeds to plant, and more.
You can pick and choose from the options in the booklet to tailor your UK Parliament Week activity. You can adapt these to suit whatever time you have available and age groups you’re working with.
Plan ahead or just open your kit and go! Taking part is that easy!
How will the pandemic affect UK Parliament Week?
You can take part wherever you are.
Your booklet includes tips on adapting activities so you can take part online, at home or in small groups.
Looking for inspiration?
Last year, over 8,000 activities took place to celebrate UK Parliament Week. Suggested activities include:
- Online Q&A sessions, quizzes and lively debates
- Creating petitions and campaigning for change
- Making videos and posting online
- Debating issues and holding votes
- Baking, crafting and colouring
- Virtual chats with MPs, members of the House of Lords, local councillors or mayors, or London Assembly Members.
