Having a Voice
The Australian Youth Forum is an exciting new initiative, which will enable young Australians to be engaged in discussions with the Australian Government about important issues. The establishment of the AYF shows that the government places significant value on the voices and views of young Australians, their creativity, unique perspectives and capacity to contribute to public debate.
Heywire is a space and a competition for young people from rural and regional Australia. It provides the opportunity to share their opinions, ideas and feelings by submitting a story about life in Australia outside the major cities. The stories of the Heywire winners are available at the Heywire website. These winners attend an all-expenses-paid trip to the Heywire Youth Issues Forum in Canberra each year where they will have a chance to visit parliament, meet their federal and local members and talk about life in rural and regional Australia.
