Debate Event for Sixth Form Students During Local Democracy Week 2018
The Chairman of Hertfordshire County Council, Councillor Richard Thake, invites you to bring a group of up to 20 sixth form students from your school to County Hall on Friday 19th October to participate in a debate event for Local Democracy Week 2018.
The event will run from 9:30am to 12:15pm. Students will participate in a case study which will bring the decision-making process to life for them. The aim is to highlight the importance of engaging in local democracy and to demonstrate how decisions that affect people’s everyday lives are taken.
Students will be given a scenario, based on a real local issue, which they will be asked to consider from a variety of perspectives. At the end of the event, they will take on the role of County Councillors and participate in a decision-making debate in the Council Chamber, which will be chaired by the Chairman.
This event offers the opportunity for students not only to experience how decisions are made, but also to meet with some of their local representatives. This event is open to any Year 12 or Year 13 pupil whom you think would benefit from this opportunity.
Please note that places for the event are limited, so please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible with an estimate of the number of students you’d like to bring to guarantee them a place. Places will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
