Politics both in Britain and abroad is unavoidable. Brexit, the election to the US presidency of Donald Trump and the 8 June general election all show the political impact of young people whether or not they engage in the democratic process.

And if the general election showed us anything, it’s the impact young people can have if they do participate in the democratic process. Teaching about politics in an engaging and informative way must be an integral part of all citizenship lessons. As Catholics, this is especially important. A key element of Catholic Social Teaching is the promotion of the “active citizen” who is both politically and socially engaged in their community.
