ColegauCymru is pleased to support ERS Cymru’s asks ahead of next year’s Senedd Elections.
We particularly welcome the vision of working towards a stronger and more diverse Senedd, and the recognition of the importance of improving the political education of young people in Wales - particularly in light of new laws which lower the voting age for the 2021 Senedd Elections.
Dr Rachel Bowen, Director of Policy and Public Affairs, said
“We welcome the move for 16 and 17 year olds to be given the opportunity be actively involved in the direction of their collective futures and hope they will take the chance to make their voices heard”.
ColegauCymru looks forward to working with ERS Cymru to encourage ever greater numbers of people of all ages to play their part in civil society and together shape a positive and inclusive future for Wales.
