Focused on the theme - 'Deepening the Commonwealth’s Commitment to Democracy and Youth Development' - the 7th Commonwealth Youth Parliament will see the participation of over 50 young people from across the Commonwealth. It will also involve young Members of Parliament from across the Commonwealth who will participate as mentors to the Young People. 

Participants will experience life in the parliamentary spotlight and have practical experience of the parliamentary system whilst showing how the next generation would approach parliamentary politics.
