Who We Are
To empower young people to participate in democracy, by creating spaces for dialogue across communities and generations, and by providing young and socially excluded citizens with the tools to lead change within society.
We believe all young people irrespective of their background can embrace who they are, can define their future, and can change the world.
UK Government National Democracy Award
MLMS won the Change Maker of the Year Award in 2018, which recognises an organisation that has put a new idea forward to increase access to democracy, convinced others of the merit of their idea and affected a real change that benefits the greater good.
“MLMS have been fantastic in helping us reach an audience we have struggled to engage with: younger people. We have collaborated with them on events, social media and publications. They are a professional, passionate and energetic bunch and have been a pleasure to work with. I have enjoyed working with them, and hope we can continue to do so.”
