Are you interested in politics and creating change? Would like to join with more than 120 other young people from around the country and take over the New Zealand Parliament in July 2022 ? I am looking for a Youth MP from Te Wai Pounamu/South Island.
Applications close on Sunday 31 October. Please email me a short essay or a video introducing yourself and an issue that you care about and want to create change on.
Send to Eugenie.Sage@parliament.govt.nz.
You need to be between 16 and 18 years old in November 2021. The two-day Youth Parliament event will be held on 19 and 20 July 2022. Flights and accommodation in Wellington are paid for by Parliament.
Youth MPs for Green MPs usually come to Wellington two days earlier to meet with Green MPs and learn more about Parliament. The six-month tenure period for being a Youth MP runs from March to August 2022.
For more information see the New Zealand Parliament website.
