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.

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.

There are also 20 Youth Press Gallery members, and one Youth Clerk role. Applications for those roles can be submitted via the Youth Parliament section of the New Zealand Parliament website.
