On the 18 March 2015, Generation Change and NCS held an event in the House of Commons to thank the Rt Hon David Blunkett MP for his public advocacy of volunteering and citizenship in the UK before he retires from parliament at the next election. 

Senior politicians from both the Labour and Conservative parties including Tristram Hunt, Yvette Cooper, and The Minister for Civil Society gathered to recognise the remarkable contribution David has made to building citizenship in this country. 

This was also an opportunity for Colton Bishop, first year UWC Atlantic College student from the United States, to meet up with Asoka and visit Parliament for the event in the House of Commons. Colton discussed the college, the UWC movement and Ashoka. He also meet up with Ashoka’s European Youth Director, and spoke with lots of different people about Ashoka and the UWC movement.
