Listening Tour Survey
Hello! I’m Angelica Ojinnaka, and I am excited to be hearing from, learning beside and leading with young people across Australia to discover the issues that are most important to them.
Understanding young people across Australia
112 Young People aged 12 to 25 in Australia have told us what is important to them through our survey. That is 6 more surveys since yesterday, and we want to hear from at least 9732 more.
Our data is updated daily at ~10am AEST.
Why is the target number of young people so specific?
We want to hear from 9838 young people across Australia. We haven’t just created a random number. Looking at the most recent Census, reaching these targets in each State and Territory will allow us to understand and make representations about all of Australia while explaining that young people are not a homogenous group. We are ambitious because the diversity of identities deserve to be voiced and included at local, state/territory, national, and international levels.
Representing all youth identities, known and changing
We aren’t just focusing on population. Young people’s identities from gender, Indigenous Background, disability, age, and more intersect to influence how we live within and experience our societies. However, it is important to not make dangerous assumptions such as a 50/50 gender split goal as this would dismiss the diversity of gender, and therefore young people themselves. We want our survey to breakdown assumptions so young people can explain who they are as they see themselves
