Boosting political engagement: how we got millions of young people to vote

Michael Sani and Kenny Imafidon, from youth democracy charity Bite The Ballot, will talk on the lessons the organisation has learnt over the past six years in how best to politically engage young citizens. In a time where (in their view incorrectly) the youth demographic is seen as apathetic, Michael and Kenny will explain how Bite The Ballot, an idea that started as a school lunch-time club, has gone onto become a movement that has registered over 3 million voters and been praised by Barack Obama for its long term goal: "to fight for change that you may not live to see, but your children will".
