The project aims to engage with a cross section of 400-500 young people from the four states of NSW, QLD, SA, VIC, aged 12-25 years, via consultations and an online survey, culminating in a research report.
The youth consultations will add the voice of young Australians on a local, national and international level, about what issues are important to them.
Plan Australia and its band of passionate young faciiltators are now in the proccess of conducting consultaions. A survey will be rolled out nationally following the consultation process, with an expectation to release the final report in August.
The report will detail the data gained from the voices and thoughts of diverse young people across Australia, so keep an eye out for this one!
