Hi! My name is Jodie Griffiths-Cook and I’m the ACT Public Advocate and Children and Young People Commissioner (PACYPC). 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 I’m introducing 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.
We want to know what it’s like for children and young people out and about in Canberra.
Write to us! 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.
Enter via the form below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
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 will be kept private and will generally 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 entry form.
Mail it to us at GPO Box 158, Canberra ACT 2601 along with the consent form.
