For The Future - Podcast

A podcast by young people, for young people.


The show aims to inspire, empower, and educate listeners through the exploration of issues raised as most important to young Australians. 

Co-hosts Lucy Stronach and Sean McCarthy were inspired to share the stories of countless young people despite the challenges of our isolated environment in 2020. Through a range of diverse topics, Lucy and Sean will interview, engage with, and discuss critical issues with those actively involved in the youth sector. Our most important guests will, of course, be young people themselves.

The podcast is a platform for the Australian Youth Representative and UN Youth Australia to amplify the voices of young people across the nation. From employment to gender inequality, mental health, and the environment- join us in thought-provoking discussions on what young people are doing to create change.
