YWT 2021 "We've Got This!"

1 March 2021

The theme for Youth Week Tasmania (YWT) 2021 was developed in consultation with the headspace Hobart reference group. The YWT 2020 theme is:

"We’ve Got This!"

This theme recognises that: 

  • 2020 was a challenging year and many young people were negatively impacted.
  • Young people have shown resilience in adversity during uncertain times.
  • Young people have a positive sense of purpose, are engaged and feel connected in their communities. 
  • Young people are integral to healing their communities.
  • Young people have a large impact on Tasmanian communities and are powerful in creating hope and positive change.  
  • Young people should celebrate their achievements, resilience and hope for their future. 

2020 has been a challenging year and many young Tasmanians were negatively impacted. 2021 is the time to celebrate young people’s achievements and resilience in adversity.

‘We’ve Got This’ is a positive affirmation that young people resonate with. It is a shared message to give hope for our future. Life may not be ‘normal’ right now, but the hardest part has passed. 

Now is a time for us to heal together and celebrate the strength of young Tasmanians!
