Mahurangi-based Labour MP Marja Lubeck has announced her Youth Member of Parliament for 2022.
Rodney College student Will Heron will represent Ms Lubeck at the 10th New Zealand Youth Parliament.
The Youth Parliament gives young people an opportunity to learn about politics through debating legislation, sitting on select committees and asking questions of ministers.
Ms Lubeck says Will has been keen on politics from a young age.
Earlier this year, Will organised a protest against the Dome Valley landfill and has been coordinating queer spaces and LGBTQ+ resources at Rodney College.
“Will is an impressive young person who will be a great representative for our community, and a voice for young people across New Zealand,” Ms Lubeck says.
