Youth Parliament is a worldwide movement giving young people a voice and the opportunity to be heard by the people who make decisions about their lives.

Its website was built by Andrew as part of a school project; his first attempt at writing HTML. Please visit the site at and read about its activities and plans (and feel free to congratulate Andrew on his production).
