Panel with the Pollies

Date: Wed, 27/03/2019

YNOT held the ‘Panel with the Pollies’ forum in Launceston, Burnie and Hobart in March 2019. This was an opportunity for young people to meet their local Federal representatives and candidates ahead of the anticipated May Federal election. 

This event directly engaged 120 young people across the State, and has provided a valuable source of information to inform YNOT, the youth sector, and all levels of government on priority issues for young Tasmanians. Regional topics differed slightly, however young people were united with common concerns and questioned the panel members on government policy surrounding climate change, mental health, employment and housing.

This forum event aimed to promote political engagement with young people and aid Federal members to be better informed on youth affairs.
