5 things you need to know about Shape Your Future

  1. Your generation is experiencing a crisis in democracy: hundreds of thousands of young people are missing from the electoral register and more than half of young people didn’t even vote in 2010. We need to work together to rebuild trust between young people and politicians. It won't happen overnight, but just giving up and opting out like Russell Brand has won't change anything.

  2. You deserve better: you're right to demand action from your politicians so young people of all backgrounds can get on in life, not just the few at the top. Labour get this. We want to tackle the issues that matter most to you: whether that’s fairer rent, better apprenticeships or a guaranteed job, nobody should be left behind.

  3. Because young people are less likely to vote, too many politicians ignore your views and needs: Ed Miliband has made a different choice. He wants young people to be heard so you can help us create the country that you want to live in.

  4. Shape Your Future is the chance for young people to have their say on Labour's plans for Government: It is also our pledge to you to hold us accountable for the promises we make, and to work with us to develop new ideas in the years to come.

  5. We want to hear from you: What are your priorities in life? Maybe you want better accommodation? A boost to start your own business? Or maybe you care most about solutions to global poverty or climate change?It takes just four minutes tell us what matters to you – so join our conversation, share with your friends and let’s shape our future together.
