As the ACT Children and Young People Commissioner, part of my job is to make things better for children and young people in the ACT. I’m really interested in hearing directly from children and young people, and not just from the adults who work with them.
That’s why we have the Young Thinker forum.
If you are a child or young person under 25 years old, tell me what you think about the topic below, or about a different community or social issue that you feel strongly about.
Write to us or create an artwork or cartoon, submit video or audio, or send us a poem or song. You can do this on your own or with your friends.
Have your say, in your way.
Have your say via the form below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Open until September 2022
We know racism happens in the ACT and we also know that it can look and feel different for children and young people than adults think. That is why it is so important that we listen to you! Let the Commissioner know your views by answering the questions below or telling us what we should have asked, but didn’t!
If you want to contribute in another way or need some assistance to contribute, you can fill out the form with your details, or get someone to help you contact us, and we will see how we can help.
We will treat what you send us carefully and follow the Information Privacy Act (2014), the Human Rights Commission Act 2005 and the Children and Young People Act 2008.
This means that the personal information you provide to us, like your name or contact details, will be kept private and will not be passed on to another person or organisation unless you agree or a law requires us to.
You can find more information about your privacy rights and our legal responsibilities, including how you can see what information we have about you and complain if we don’t use it in the right ways.
Complete the Young Thinker online form.
Mail it to us at GPO Box 158, Canberra ACT 2601 along with the consent form.
