A panel considers what kind of country will be inherited by today’s younger generation

Ahead of a key moment in British history, this debate considers the future of the country that will be inherited by today’s younger generation, and how the turmoil and division of the last two-and-a-half-years has influenced their political engagement.

In order to allow live interaction and audience engagement we will be using the Voxvote system to ask a series of 5 questions relating to young people and Brexit throughout the evening. The results will be displayed to you. Voxvote is a free audience response system that captures realtime responses and can be accessed by going online via your mobile phones.
