Parliament's Education Service - empowering young people
We aim to play an active part in ensuring that all school children have a good understanding of Parliament, how it works and what democracy can mean for them. We want to enable every school-aged child in the UK to have a positive learning experience of Parliament, either in person or remotely. As a result of participating in our range of services we hope that young people are inspired to undertake democratic action within their school life, in their community and on into adulthood.

Lights, Camera, Parliament!
What law would you make?
Young people aged 11-16 across the UK are invited to think of a law they’d like to make, and then to create a short film about it!
‘Lights, Camera, Parliament!’ is a project for teachers and youth workers looking to inspire young people to have their say, and to think about democracy and law making in a fresh and creative way. The laws they suggest can be about anything they care about and want to change!
Parliament’s Education Service provides support to help delivery of this project with resource packs, lesson plans, tips on law making and film making and free CPD training days in October 2010.
Groups selected as finalists will be invited to the Houses of Parliament for a Winners’ Day! They will have the opportunity to screen and discuss their films with a judging panel of MPs, Peers and film professionals, as well as the chance to win prizes on the day.
The final date for submission of films is Friday 14th January 2011
