18 – 22 October 2021

The 12th Commonwealth Youth Parliament, will be held virtually this year from 18 – 22 October 2021.

The Commonwealth Youth Parliament is designed to demonstrate to future young parliamentarians the role and purpose of parliaments as institutions for democracy and good governance.
