Too often, young people’s voices are not recognised. This is particularly true in general elections, where young people are often dismissed as unlikely to vote, and where the definition of the “youth vote” can go up to age 34.
Our #iwill Ambassadors, many of whom are voting for the very first time, have been passionately putting forth their voices. From gang grooming to climate change to a youth mental health crisis – they demand action from leaders and decision makers.
Whilst critical, these issues are not without hope. Read below to see how Anna, Dan, Jonelle, Josh, Taryn, Joana, Nyasha and Lanai feel that the next government can act in the interest of young people.
The opinions of #iwill Ambassadors are their own and do not necessarily reflect those of the #iwill campaign and its partners.
