Message from Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier, Guy Barnett MP
National Youth Week (NYW) is the largest youth celebration across Australia, and each year thousands of young Tasmanians get involved.
NYW is for young people, by young people. They plan and develop events to celebrate their youth, ensure their voices are heard on issues that matter to them and have their contributions recognised by the community.
The 2015 NYW theme It starts with us recognises that young people are the future and have the power to set the agenda and bring about positive change.
In 2014, almost 10, 000 young people participated in NYW events and activities across Tasmania. I know that our young people will rise to the challenge again in 2015.
The Tasmanian Government proudly supports NYW and I look forward to attending a program of innovative and inspiring events during NYW 2015.
