Event description
Camp Parliament for Girls London 2020 is a political leadership program that introduces girls ages 8 to 15 to the parliamentary system of government. Camp will begin with a lesson on the structure and history of the British Parliament. The lesson will specifically include a brief history of the British Parliament, eligibility requirements to serve, a review of political parties, the structure of parliamentary elections and recognition of the UK's female political leaders. This will be followed by a study of the nations that have a parliamentary system of government in place. Camp will culminate with campers forming their own parliament to propose, debate and vote on a law.  Each girl will serve as an MP. All participants earn a Certificate of Completion for participation.
