The Case for the Youth Vote

This is an exciting time in history, where the momentum for young activism and mobilization is on the rise. The formal recognition and invocation of children as rights holders and decision makers, put forth by the UN Convention thirty years ago, has the opportunity to be exercised by young people in the UK when voting at the upcoming elections. The youth involvement in the process of decision-making is one of the best ways to put in practice restorative justice principles such as equality and power-sharing. In the spirit of Helen Keller, “I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.”
