In the aftermath of the EU referendum results, there has been a lot of discussion in the media about the impact of Brexit on young people, and indeed future generations of youth. The aim of this panel discussion is to provide an evidence-based discussion about how young people feel about Brexit, what they want from Brexit, and how Brexit is shaping their aspirations for work, travel and / or study abroad. Key questions that we will touch on in the debate include: How do young people feel about the referendum result? Why did so many young people vote Remain? And as the Brexit negotiations get underway, what are young people's concerns about the future?
