Young Canberrans and those who work with young people are urged to comment on the discussion paper on the new ACT Young Peoples’ Plan 2009-2014.
The new plan will set clear benchmarks to make sure we are meeting our goals, in the areas of education, health and wellbeing of children and young people.
Issues you may want to comment on include living sustainably and the environment, individual and community wellbeing, moving from education to further training and work, representation of young people in the media and cyber-bullying. You might also want to comment on sporting facilities or getting involved in advisory groups, boards and committees.
