It’s a big day today for the Welsh Youth Parliament as their first ever report is published.
Given the current uncertainty surrounding UK and world politics, this report is extremely important as the voices of young people in Wales will hopefully cut through the political tension and will provide a platform for our voices to be heard above the noise.
It represents the progress of democracy in Wales and shows young people have a voice. It proves the Welsh Youth Parliament’s dedication and commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of young people. It shows that young people know what is best for young people and that we have the competency to make an impact.
This report is relevant, diverse, and represents a variety of opinions from people all across Wales and, if our recommendations are taken forward, has the potential to change the lives of young people across Wales and leave a legacy for many years to come.
Once it is published, we’re hoping that politicians follow the advice found in it and take practical steps to bridge the large gaps within life skills in schools at the moment. We would like politicians to closely refer to the report to make amendments to the Curriculum for Wales and incorporate vital life skills that are so heavily demanded by young people and educational professionals.
It’s a privilege to be a part of the first report as it will set the foundations for many reports to come.
