House of Lords embraces YouTube generation with politics videos

Antony Savvas

The House of Lords has launched five short videos on Parliament's new YouTube channel, explaining the role of the House of Lords and encouraging young people to get involved in politics.

The new YouTube channel will attempt to reach out to young people and other audiences who may not be involved in politics or well informed about the role of Parliament.

The five videos aim to explain the role, impact and relevance of the House of Lords, and encourage young people to get involved in politics.

The initiative follows the launch of the Lords of the Blog website, and is another means by which the House of Lords is engaging with the public, and young people in particular, in ways that appeal to them.

The first five videos are:

- House of Lords: What's it all about?

- House of Lords: Fifty years of change - Life Peerages Act

- The Lord Speaker goes to school

- Why get into politics?

- Highlights of the United Kingdom Youth Parliament (UKYP) event in the House of Lords
