Residents aged 30 and under are invited to a meeting.
The meeting has been organised by a new youth campaign group called, Havering Young Residents on Saturday February 23 at Hornchurch Library in North Street.
Starting at 3pm, it is a chance to explore what it means to be a young person in today’s society, what the political issues are and how young residents can work together to overcome these and achieve their full potential.
The group was formed by Alex Donald, who set up a blog last year to get young people in Havering interested in politics.
He said: “My generation has been affected the most by this economic crissi, yet we’re also least likely to get involved in politics.

He added: “I want politicians, business and civil society leaders on side and use social media to make things happen.
