Are you aged 12 to 24 and want your voice to be heard on important decisions being made about Byron Shire’s future?
Council’s inviting all young people to take the 2021 Youth Survey, to share your views, ideas and challenges and go into the draw to win an Apple iPad or UE Boom Speakers.
Council’s Project Officer, Isabelle Wood, says, ‘Earlier this year, young people participating in our YouthSay Program told us we needed to do more to include young people’s opinions in decision-making for the Shire’.
‘Now, we want to know how young people want to be involved – how they want to connect with Council and have a voice’, Ms Wood said.
‘Do they want to be part of youth workshops, a youth forum, specific community projects, focus on targeted issues, or something more casual like youth conversations or surveys?’
‘In what ways can councillors and Council staff do more to make sure young people’s views and opinions are reflected in important decision-making?’ she said.
‘Council’s Youth Survey 2021 is online at www.yoursaybyronshire.com.au/
‘Prizes will be drawn on January 11, 2022 and winners notified’.
