The name of our group is politiCAN. This name is derived from our campaigning theme and aim, which is to create concrete political awareness among the young people in primary schools, aged between 16-18 years. There is a general concern that young people in the UK who have reached the age of voting either do not register as voters though they are eligible, or do not turn up at polling stations to vote even if they are registered. This is because of general apathy towards politics.
Our group therefore, having fully understood the importance of politics and its direct impact on our contemporary and future life, is embarking on a noble activity to enable young people develop interest in this all important aspect of our life.
