Help us tell our MPs what matters

This year, as the 2017 Australian Youth Representative to the UN, I started trying to answer the question “what would it mean if young people were imagined as being as complex as they are?”

I know that young people have imaginative, nuanced, and important contributions to make to public discourse but aren’t given much of an opportunity to do that. This year, I met with tens of thousands of young people across schools, workplaces, community groups, and non-profit organisations asking them what they wish the government knew and considered about them when making decisions. 

I've collected their stories, struggles, dreams, and solutions. In a couple of weeks, I'll be in New York at the UN General Assembly to report on what I've learnt. But it doesn't end there. 

I wish the government knew what young people care about, so I need you to help me tell them. I've collected information from young people in every electorate across Australia, and over the coming weeks, I'll have a report for each MP filled with information from their electorate. In November, young people from all over Australia will take their reports to their local members to tell them about the issues that they care about, and their proposed solutions.

I need your help to make sure that young people around the country will be able to access the report back. Young people need you to make sure that they're heard. Your support will ensure young people around Australia have the opportunity to be part of report deliveries, and have their voices heard by decision makers.
