UK Parliament Week is an annual festival taking place from 1-7 November, that engages people across the country with their UK Parliament, explores what it means to them and empowers them to get involved.
This year marks ten years of UK Parliament Week. It is a great opportunity to be part of a thriving democracy and look ahead to the next 10 years, thinking about what issues are important to you and how you can work with the UK Parliament to bring about change. Community groups, local organisations and schools representing every constituency across the United Kingdom have already signed up to be part of the conversation.
Last year, over 1.2 million people took part in UK Parliament week in every nation and region of the UK, alongside countries all over the world. Already so far this year over 8,000 activities have been organised across the length and breadth of the country for this upcoming UK Parliamentary Week’s festivities. Over the past decade people from across the country have set up Q&A sessions, launched petitions, created political videos and content, held debates and even organised visits to their local MP to mark the occasion
In the meantime, if you’re interested in getting involved at home, at your workplace or planning activities with a local school, then the organisers of UK parliamentary Week have provided tons of brilliant resources and tips that can be found on their website.
