2021 Listening Tour

Each year, the Youth Representative leads an extensive, nationwide consultation tour to engage with and discover the issues that are most important to young Australians. Known as the ‘Listening Tour‘, this 6-month journey typically sees the Youth Representative travel to every State and Territory, engaging with young people in urban, regional, and rural areas.

Through consultations held at youth conferences, school visits, UN Youth Australia events, emergency housing and juvenile justice centres, and an expansive range more, the Youth Rep program obtains a wide range of youth perspectives and experiences. The Youth Representative conveys the multitude of individual voices not as a homogenous group, but as a vast ecosystem of differing perspectives, opinions and experiences that shape society. Importantly, the Youth Rep will meet not only with young people but also with prominent members of the Australian community, including MPs, NGO leaders and those involved in the youth and education sectors.
