Campaign: To show young people the different ways they can be political

I stood as a general election candidate for the Green Party in 2015, and when I spoke at hustings I noticed that there weren’t many young people involved, and that there were some who didn’t know about different political parties and how they could influence policies.

 

As much as they cared about the issues at hand, they didn’t feel enabled enough to do something about them. I made the film with Fixers because I wanted to empower young people.

 

We are constantly engaged in politics but I think some young people don’t realise the role they play.

 

I want to show them that you don’t have to work in politics to influence policies, you just need to find what you’re passionate about and create change. 

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix: 

 

Brandon Mortucci

Isabella Vieceli-Willcox

Bethany Bell

George Lovader
