Event: Represent Us

We are bringing together leading activists, artists and thought-leaders to imagine how democracy in Australia can deliver for young people.

WHERE: The Edge, Federation Square
WHEN: Thursday 16 March 2023, 11am

If you have a young person in your life who is curious about how to take action on the issues that impact them, we’d love for you to share this event with them!

Young people should grow up believing anything is possible – that they have opportunities in their lives to shape the world they live in.

Following the May 2022 election, we have our most diverse Parliament ever. But representation is not only about “who” is in Parliament, it is also about “how” these representatives are empowered to push forward the interests of the diverse groups they represent.

Join us to discuss and build a youth agenda to guide the work of our new government and our Youth Minister, Anne Aly. We will talk about a broad range of issues that disproportionately impact young people from mental health to climate change.

Speakers include:

WHERE: The Edge, Federation Square
