Renate  Schmidt - Let Our Children Choose


A plea for more intergenerational justice

In a democracy, those who have power are generally those who are eligible to vote. Children seldom have a voice in politics, because their interests are poorly organised and they scarcely have any lobby to represent them. Compared to other groups', the number of members in family organisations is negligible. Why should children and young people be excluded from democracy only because of their age? Shouldn't the generation that will be affected the longest by the consequences of current decisions receive more say in those decisions? Renate Schmidt calls for the demographic change in our society to be taken into account and for every person to have a voice from birth onwards.
