CYC have been busy coordinating the UK Youth Parliament Make Your Mark Ballot here in Cardiff once again. CYC members have been contacting schools and youth groups all across the city to take part in the biggest youth consultation for 11-18 year olds in Europe. This year we had over 9500 young people from across the city take part and cast their votes. The top 3 issues voted for by young people were in 2016 were:
A curriculum should prepare us for life: School should cover topics including finance, sex & relationships and politics in the curriculum.
Tackling racism and religious discrimination, particularly against people who are Muslim or Jewish :
All young people should work together to combat racism and other forms of discrimination, and ensure we know the danger of such Hatred.
First aid education for all young people: All young people should learn basic First Aid on a regular basis , including CPR and all schools in the UK should have a defibrillator.
