Parliament Week 2012, taking place between the 19 and 25 November 2012, raises awareness and understanding of Parliament and democracy in the UK. The week will bring together a diverse range of organisations, schools and individuals from across the UK in a week-long programme of events designed to engage, inform and inspire.
Coordinated by the Houses of Parliament, Parliament Week looks at the people, places and events that shape democracy in the UK. The events will inspire people to get involved with politics, encourage them to make their voices heard on the issues that matter to them, look at how our democracy works today and discuss its future.
Organisations such as the Royal Society of Arts, the National Children’s Bureau, UK Youth Parliament and FILMCLUB are joining with Parliament to host events about democracy and political engagement. BBC Question Time is being broadcast from the historic Westminster Hall on Thursday 22 November 2012 and the Hansard Society is hosting ‘Young People’s Question Time’.
