Have you ever wondered about something and thought that there should be law about it?  Now here is your chance- Get together with your mates and a G'Day.  We can all learn from our Australian Friends as the people from Down Under turn our World Up Side Down and show us how it is done. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 


Welcome to Debatable, the magazine from the UK Youth Parliament.

The purpose of the magazine is to generate political debate, to inform decision makers of the issues which matter most to young people, and to challenge the negative portrayal of young people in the media by showcasing the positive work young people are doing around the UK.

Debatable is published quarterly and is free to download from the UKYP website. 

We hope you enjoy!
