About the campaign
Young people will endure the effects of Brexit for the longest. Whether we voted leave or remain, it is imperative that we get the opportunity to have a say on our own futures. Our Brexit is a politically neutral campaign, making sure young people are heard in the Brexit decision-making process.
The campaign aims to create space for young people aged 16-25 to share Brexit Vlogs, engage with infographics and online polls and interview their local MP. We hope to influence the government into making real change in local communities, and bring the UK a step closer to a Brexit that works for young people.

Updates from the campaign
Over the past couple of months, Our Brexit has spoken to nearly 100 young people about the issues that matter to them, around Brexit and our future. This listening campaign was a real eye opener for us as this was a chance for us to see what our peers make of Brexit and it gave us an idea of the things that are really concerning the youth at large.Read More

How did I become a co-founder of Our Brexit? In July 2017 me and my friend Nathan went to a summer party held in Wolverhampton city centre. This party was in celebration of the three MPs that had just been elected in the snap general election. One of the guest speakers was Chuka Umunna. I remember listening to his speech about Brexit and the Single Market and two thoughts came into my mind.Read More
