The kids are alright

From The Panel, 4:52 pm on 12 June 2019

Last week we talked about young people getting involved in politics and serious issues. And this week a lovely story out of Marlborough.

A group of schoolchildren, some as young as 8, have appeared at the council's annual plan hearings with a call for improved cycle safety. They want to install a cycle lane to make cycling safer and reduce emissions.

The Panellists discuss whether this is a new era of youth participation in politics.
