Presiding Officer's Statement: Youth Engagement (5 mins)

The item started at 13.37

 

The Presiding Officer made a statement launching the new approach to youth engagement.  The Presiding Officer explained the vision is for young people’s views to be fed into all aspects of the Assembly’s work and the approach to youth engagement will have three key parts: First, reaching out:  whoever and wherever they are, young people in Wales will be encouraged to take part. Second, enabling debate:  we will provide a variety of innovative ways for young people to take part in our work. And third, feedback:  we will explain to young people how their contributions are making a difference so that they are inspired to engage further. The Presiding Officer then called party leaders, who made statements outlining their political groups’ commitment to youth engagement.
