James Craig 

Brexit: How can we move forward together?

The outcome of the EU referendum would probably have been different had more young people in the UK bothered to vote. Why are people so disengaged from the political process, and how can we change that? It’s a question James Craig has been considering since the vote for Brexit.

James Craig is a second year student at Exeter College studying Maths, Chemistry and History.

Having originally aspired to be a Doctor, a work experience placement at a solicitor’s firm set him on a different path. Having been interested in law and politics now for several years, he has applied to study Law at university after completion of his A-levels. He’s previously been Chair of his schools council, tutor rep and the Diversity Officer of Exeter College’s Student Representative Committee.

James believes in the power of communication and is thrilled to have been given the opportunity to talk at TEDxExeter.
