It's being organised by SpunOut.ie and under the banner of WeMatter16.
It's being co-moderated by 17 year old Waterford native Tadgh Williams who told Beat News what he hopes to achieve.
'The whole idea of it is basically is to give young people an opportunity to hear what the candidates in Waterford have to say about youth issues, about issues that matter to young people.'
'It's very important that the next Government understand what issues face young people.'
'We've had a lot of people leave the country recently and I think it's important that young people can stay in the country and secure a future for themselves here.'
He outlines some of the issues that will be discussed.
'One of the main things we're going to discuss is mental health.'
'In secondary schools especially, career guidance councillors were cut in the lifetime of this Government'
'One in two young people experience mental health issues by the time they're 24, so it's something that has to be addressed.'
'Other matters that will be discussed are homelessness, repeal of the 8th amendment and the justice system'
