The Millennial Manifesto: policies to win over younger voters

  • Room: Central 3 International Convention Centre Manchester United Kingdom (map)

The Adam Smith Institute are hosting a series of panel discussions and debates at the Conservative Party Conference that are free to attend for any Conservative Party Conference attendees. To find out more, email

The Conservatives need an agenda that addresses the real concerns of young people, from the high cost of housing to sluggish wage growth and the high cost of university tuition. If they do not, then Corbyn could be in Number 10 implementing a socialist agenda of rent controls, free tuition and nationalisation. What policies and arguments should Conservatives make to win back young people?

We've put together a great panel to discuss the policies needed to win over young voters. Our President (and author of The Millennial Manifesto) Dr Madsen Pirie will be setting out his bold (but deliverable) policies persuade young voters to reject socialism. We will also be hosting our former Head of Communications and the IEA's current News Editor Kate Andrews. The ASI's Head of Research Ben Southwood will be rounding out the panel and Times' Diarist Grant Tucker will be chairing the panel.

It's sure to be a fun discussion, and we hope you'll be around to see it. We're hosting it inside the Secure Zone (so you'll need a conference pass) in Room Central 3 at the Manchester Central. The event's free to attend, no need to RSVP, just turn up at 4pm.
