As November approaches, anticipation is building among young leaders in Britain, as the Children’s Parliament gears up to select its next Interim Prime Minister. The upcoming leadership transition has been prompted by the stepping down of the current Children’s Parliament Prime Minister, Harry Acheampong, 11 years who has transitioned to secondary school.

The Children’s Parliament, a vital platform that empowers young voices and facilitates discussion on pressing issues, is set to host this momentous event on the eve of COP28, ahead of the World Parliament. The young Members of Parliament, representing diverse schools from across the nation, will gather to elect a new leader who will champion their causes and advocate for positive change.

In April of this year, 33 primary school children from various esteemed institutions including Saint Pierre School, St. Michael’s School, Leigh on Sea, Essex; Childs Hill School, Farnham Primary School, Sudbury Primary School, Chadwell Heath Academy, Farnham Green Primary School, St. Peter’s Primary School, Dollis Primary School, and William Brook Primary School Academy in the East End, London, demonstrated their enthusiasm and dedication during an insightful session. During this event, they engaged with industry experts, including Ashleigh Ainsley from Colorintech; Simone Vibert from Internet Matters; Tara Collingwoode-Williams from Goldsmiths University of London, and Tim Scott, Director of Public Policy at Roblox.

Rt Hon Damian Collins MP, who chaired the Joint Select Committee on Online Safety, provided a keynote speech during the event and addressed the children’s queries. Additionally, Ai-Da, the innovative robot, joined the discussion via video link, allowing the children to engage in a unique and informative conversation.

Eleven-year-old Harry Acheampong, the outgoing Interim Children’s Parliament Prime Minister, participated in this event alongside Baroness Uddin and Anna Firth MP, co-chairing the session. Their presence underscored the importance of involving young leaders in critical dialogues about the present and future.

The search for the next Interim Children’s Parliament Prime Minister is now open, and we invite aspiring young leaders to step up and make a difference in their communities and beyond. This pivotal role offers a platform to voice the concerns of fellow children and advocate for their rights.
