Camden Youth MP Election 2020
UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 emergency, we were unfortunately unable to hold the Camden Youth MP Election as planned in 2020. We will let you know about any plans for a new election and if it is possible to run one in 2021.
Youth MP and Deputy Youth MPs
The Youth MP, and two Deputy Youth MPs, have a two-year term and are the voice for Camden young people, seeking to put forward their interests in local decision-making, as well as representing the views and interests of local young people at regional and national level through the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP).
Your newly-elected Youth MP and Deputy Youth MPs will:
- lead Camden Youth Council
- attend regional and national events
- attend the UKYP national meeting to decide on future campaigns
- attend the UKYP event at the House of Commons to debate and vote on national campaigns
- meet senior Council officers, councillors and other local decision-makers
- visit schools and youth clubs
- oversee the progress of the issues outlined by young people at the annual Camden Shout Out
- represent the views of local young people at a range of council and community meetings.
The Youth MP election is organised by staff in Camden’s youth service and local young people.
