Disengagement and Young Adults

Chris Mason brings together contributions from listeners across Britain on issues that concern them. In this edition, he explores the political disengagement of young adults.

BBC Radio 4's Listeners' Election project culminates with a week-long series of programmes. Chris Mason brings together contributions from listeners across the country on particular themes that concern them.

In this edition, one older listener explain she thinks politics in Britain is biased against the young.

And this prompts Chris to talk to some of those young people the BBC is following as part of 'Generation 2015'. Why are some so engaged in politics, but many so disconnected? What really lies at the root of this? Who is at fault? And how can it be tackled?

PRODUCERS: PHIL TINLINE AND SARAH KEATING.
