Since its inception in 2018, it has been held around the UN International Youth Day as part of the commemoration engagements that play a vital role in amplifying youth voices to legislators.
This year through the Platform for Youth Inclusion in Politics (PYIP), in partnership with the Parliament of Uganda, European Union, ActionAid Uganda, Restless Development, Westminster Foundation, Advance Afrika and PYIP members are organizing the fourth National Youth Parliament on 17th September 2021; under the theme “Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health,” adopted from the UN International Youth Day 2021 theme.
