In an event packed with inspirational stories and aspirational youth one of the highlights was the Youth Achievement Award presented to the 2014 winner of ‘The Voice’, Jermain Jackman. He explained to the full  Parliament Committee Room 14, that he wants to make a difference both in politics and music. He suggested that he might be the first singing Prime Minister!

Organised by the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) – UK and hosted by its Patron, Virendra Sharma MP, the programme included presentations to ten young adults mostly by their constituency MPs. During the programme a UPF Ambassador for Peace award was presented to Pauline Long who as mentor, founder of the BEFFTA awards and entrepreneur has had a profound influence on many including Jackman.

Matteo Bergamini of Shout Out UK

“Up until when I turned 18 a few months ago, I was never interested in politics. Suddenly, I thought now that I can vote whom do I vote for? I must be informed. This type of event will help us (young people) to be informed and hopefully, more involved too”

On the 14th of October 2014, around 100 young people and political figures gathered in the House of Commons to discuss youth engagement in politics. Speakers included; Matteo Bergamini of Shout Out UK, Gisela Stuart MP, Rt Hon. Tom Brake, Naiha Masih, John Loughton of Dare 2 Lead, and Amira El-Houderi of Young Leaders and Youth UPF. However, due to the fantastic quality of the speakers and the points that they raised, much of the event was transformed into a discussion and exchange of ideas across the room.
