young people in making their voice heard.
The KYCC Elections took place over Local
Democracy Week 2012 to ensure all young people understand the
importance of engaging in the democratic process and learn how
their vote can make a difference!
KYCC has become a vital part of Kent's
democratic process, with cabinet members and Kent County
Council officers regularly consulting members of KYCC on a wide
range of issues, including education, transport and the
KYCC members also attend events outside of Kent, such as
conferences in Westminster, meetings at the European Parliament in
Brussels and with young people from around Europe.
KYCC works closely with the UK Youth Parliament and British
Youth Council on national issues and attends events across the
KYCC Community Seats give young people
the opportunity to represent the views and issues of the diverse
communities within Kent.
The election process for community
seats will take place alongside the area seat elections with
members elected from specialist projects.
For example, a young carer will be
elected with the Young Carer’s Network. This will ensure democracy,
sensitivity and confidentiality for the candidates concerned.
