Let’s Raise Our Voices – Webinar

Friday 5 November 2021 

3pm – 4pm ACST, 3.30pm – 4.30pm AEST, 4.30pm – 5.30pm AEDT



Children and young people thrive when they have the opportunity to fully participate in their community and broader society.

In the webinar, NAPCAN showcased three projects that are elevating the voices of children and young people in meaningful ways in Australia:

  • Ashleigh Streeter-Jones, Founder & Facilitator, Raise Our Voice presented on the Youth Voice in Parliament project
  • Aysha Kerr, Project Officer, Youth Voice NT, NTCOSS presented on the Youth Voice NT project
  • Jenny Chaves, Area Manager Strengthening Communities SE Qld Mission Australia, and ​​Bek Pick, Community Development and Collective Impact Facilitator Communities for Children Inala to Ipswich and Project Lead for Children’s Voice Advisory Councils, presented on the Children’s Voices Inala to Ipswich Project.

This webinar has been organised in support of Children’s Week 2021 (but will be held during the following week). This year’s theme is based on Article 15 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child: Children have the right to meet together and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop other people from enjoying their rights. To find out more about Children’s Week and how to get involved in your state or territory visit www.childrensweek.org.au.
