Stephanie Riches works for The People’s Powerhouse , a charity which exists to shape the debate around the Northern Powerhouse, and to ensure that the concerns of people and communities are at the heart of the Powerhouse plans, not the periphery. They work to ensuring voices from all demographics in the North are heard – and they are concerned that the voices of students are not always heard in local politics.

In this challenge Stephanie asks you to answer this challenge; to consider how we can get students more engaged in local politics and decision making in order for their voices to be heard. This might involve inspiring students themselves to participate more fully – or ways of encouraging politicians and leaders to make better space to hear them.
