      Politics affects everyone of every age! But I think it’s more about when children are old enough to understand that politics affects them, which is getting younger and younger luckily.

      Probably in adolescence. It’s great to see so many young people become politically engaged. Currently Greta Thunberg is making waves and has a huge following – and rightly so.
