Residents aged 30 and under spoke about what it is like to live in today’s society.
It was part of the first meeting of the Havering Young Residents, which took place recently at Hornchurch Library in North Street.
The group was started by Alex Donald, who set up a blog last year to get young people in Havering interested in politics.
He said: “It was a really positive and vibrant discussion which completely smashes the myth that young people are apathetic about politics.
“Everyone who attended got involved in the discussion, and there were some really passionate views, including many disagreements.”
