Greens launch National Youth Survey

Media Release
Sarah Hanson-Young 7 Apr 2013

The Australian Greens are launching a new National Youth Survey today, coinciding with National Youth Week.

The survey for 15 to 25 year olds can be found at

"The voice of Australia's young people is too important to ignore," the Greens youth spokesperson, Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said.

"Too often our youth become disillusioned with modern politics but the Greens are here to listen to what they have to say.

"I want to hear what young Australians care about right now and I want to hear it directly from them."

The survey asks a range of questions about topics as diverse as education, income, homophobia and social security.

"Today's youth are the leaders of tomorrow and it is essential that we develop policies that support them.

"In a society that is becoming less and less caring, it is the young and the vulnerable who stand to lose the most.

"The Greens have a long and proud history of standing up for Australia's young people and this survey will play a crucial role in the party's policy development in the future."

If you're aged between 15 and 25, you can visit to have your say. 

Further information regarding the survey can be found in the attached document.
