Democracy: Are young people changing the game?
Much is written about young people's supposed apathy towards politics and democracy but last year’s federal election saw youth voter participation increased from 51 – 71%. That got us thinking; has anyone asked young people what they think?
YACSA has undertaken research on how young people engage with politics and democracy and hosted a series of conversations with young people aged 12 - 25. We'll share the results of that research and in partnership with YMCA, host a panel discussion with Youth Parliamentarians who will share their expert opinions on politics and democracy and what would make both more engaging now and in the future.
