Jenny Willott, Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, has welcomed sixth formers from around the country to Parliament as part of an event organised by CAFOD to encourage young people to engage with politics and campaigning.

Students from St. David's College in Cardiff were part of the group which visited Parliament to discuss questions and concerns regarding the global food system and climate change with their constituency MPs.

The event was a great success, with one of the young people calling it the 'most inspiring event I've ever been to'.

Jenny Willott MP said:

"The 2015 election will be the first opportunity for lots of these young people to vote. I am delighted that they are engaging so actively with the political process; often the voice of younger members of the electorate get drowned out, so it is very important that MPs like me hear what really matters to these young people so we can represent them effectively."
