Democracy in a Digital Age...

The House of Lords Chamber Event took place on Friday 28 November chaired by the Lord Speaker Baroness D’Souza. Representing UK Youth, Lower Sixth student Mark Strasshine joined 190 people from across the UK who came together to have their say from the red benches on democracy in a digital age.

The debate focused on the question:

'Parliament 2.0: In a digital society, is politics for politicians or is everyone a decision maker?'
Mark was lucky enough to be able to give his input during the debate which was broadcast live on BBC Parliament.  The full debate can be watched on the BBC iPlayer Parliament Channel.
