Candidate for Leicester West

Anika Goddard

I am studying for my A levels and I am one of the leaders of the student climate strikes movement in Leicester. Young people are becoming more political but they do not have the political representation to match that. I want to amplify the voices of young people in parliament.

The voting age should be reduced to 16 so that people can have a say on issues like the climate crisis and social justice that will affect them. I joined the Green Party because it is the party which has most consistently stood up for the protection of our environment and a sustainable future.
