Youth Councils and digital platforms
Youth councils could play a signficant role in terms of connecting and engaging with youth. This might need moving away from traditional methods of engagement such as formal meetings. Forward and innovative thinking and establishing online forums to hear young voices would help increase youth participation in govt matters. Young people place greater importance on sense of belonging and prefer informal methods of communication. Meaningful engagment with youth could be achieved through connecting with them via sports, cultural and civic activities.
Why the contribution is important
Young people will feel valued and heard. They will find it easy to engage with govt on matters important to them.
