About the Event

It's a battle faced by all political parties: engaging young people and keeping them active. And in the digital age of endless choice and constant distraction, there's a whole lot of different avenues for young people to have a voice. Whereas political parties were once seen as a place for politics, sport, and social engagement, they are now the bastions of activists. According to surveys the so-called “tipping point” - the age at which people are more likely to vote Conservative than Labour - has increased from 47 to 51 since the 2017 general election. The average age of Conservative Party members is 72, according to the Bow Group think tank. Is the problem with policy? Should we be utilising technology more? How does the Party communicate with a younger audience? How can the Party attract new members and voters?
