Last year’s Politics Society blog was an exciting step forward from the blogs of the previous years. A wide spectrum of views were eloquently laid out in opinion pieces written from students in both years 13 and 12 – an important development from the previous years.
In this year’s blog we want to continue this momentum, now with a separate website for the blog to have space to expand. We are looking to have regular monthly columns and shorter response pieces to go up soon after significant political events; as well as continuing to report on talks and events we host. This blog will provide a platform for the political voices of young people to be expressed in a culture where those voices are heard all too rarely.
We are excited for this ongoing project to take off as a place for serious political discussion by and for young people. We hope you enjoy it.
