UK Parliament Week is an annual festival that aims to engage young people with the UK Parliament and empower them to get involved.
As an official partner of UK Parliament Week, we are inviting member schools to take part in this annual festival. This is an exciting opportunity for students to engage in the conversation about democracy and bringing about meaningful change.
When you sign up, UK Parliament Week will post you a free kit packed with goodies including an activity booklet, bunting, a ballot box, stickers, and more. You can pick and choose from the options in the booklet to tailor your UK Parliament Week activity to suit your school and students.
Last year over 1.2 million people took part in UK Parliament Week, in every nation and region of the UK, and countries all over the world. UK Parliament Week was celebrated in all sorts of ways. Here are a few ideas for all ages to get you started:
- Q&A sessions, quizzes and lively debates
- Creating petitions and campaigning for change
- Making videos and posting online
- Debating issues and holding votes
- Themed assemblies and school council elections
- Baking, crafting and colouring
Take a look at some of the activities that COBIS schools delivered to mark last year's UK Parliament Week here.
