Youth Forums


Young people across Victoria are invited to take part in a series of 12 youth forums that will help to shape future government decisions. 

Taking part in these forums is a great way for you to contribute to the agenda of the Victorian Youth Summit, which will be held on 31 March 2017, the opening day of National Youth Week.

With input from these youth forums, the Youth Summit will bring together young people from across Victoria to discuss matters of importance and ideas for action.

Participants in the Summit will also meet regional representatives to the Victorian Youth Congress, who will advise government and act on priority issues identified at the Summit.
