Pimlico students at Children and Youth on the Move Conference
Some lucky Pimlico historians took the opportunity to attend the Children and Youth On the Move Conference on Thursday 21 March, organised by Children's History Society at the University of Greenwich's historic maritime campus.
The conference reflected on movement in all its forms, and offered our young people a platform to reflect on their response to history.
Students from Pimlico even led an articulate discussion on the political rights of young people, and argued that the voting age should be lowered to 16, so that more young people feel included in political debate, and feel that their opinions are recognised by government.
The students also shared their research on children's experiences in the workhouses and asylums, impressing their audience of academics and historians.
The event was part of a trip organised by Pimlico Academy's exceptional History Department.
