A HINDU cultural organisation on Friday (1) announced that it has become an official partner to host UK Parliament Week Activity to mark UK Parliament Week, which runs from November 2 till 8.
The Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh UK said it was excited to get more people, especially youth, to play a vital role in the democracy. UK Parliament Week provides people with an opportunity to ask questions, think critically and engage with the UK Parliament.
HSS (U.K.) spokesperson said: “We are excited to join communities across the country getting involved in UK Parliament Week 2019 and getting more people in our branches (known as Shakhas) involved in playing a vital role in their democracy.
“From Sale in the North West to Bromley in the South, Southend in the East to Cheltenham in the West, over 24 branches will participate with a total of more than 720 participants. Debates, balloting, role playing, quizzes, Q & A with Members of Parliament, and Parliament education videos are some of the activities that will feature in our events.”
Last year, the UK Parliament Week reached almost 1 million people and featured more than 8,100 activities.
This year’s festival is expected to be the largest ever, said David Clark, Head of Education and Engagement at UK Parliament.
“There are many exciting activities happening across the country as part of this year’s UK Parliament Week, with schools, workplaces and community groups using the week to have their say on the issues they care about most,” he said.
