Youth Think Tank - Social Inclusion: Thinking All Round

The Social Inclusion: Thinking All Round Youth Think Tank was held on Saturday 20 August at the National Convention Centre from 9am to 4pm and included:

  • Participation in four think tanks
  • Prizes! Samsung tablets, iTunes cards and Hoyts movie tickets as prizes.
  • FUN activities - gladiator challenge, horizontal bungee
  • Free Food
  • DJ playing over lunch
  • PCYC Gaming van

The Social Inclusion: Thinking All Round Youth Think Tank provided an opportunity for young people to come together and discuss the concept of social inclusion through the following four focus areas: Cultural Cohesion, Inclusive Environments, Sexual Diversity and Youthism.

Each Thank Tank explored focus areas in depth, discussing how the community currently creates the opportunity for young people to feel socially included and how individuals can be better equipped to contribute to an inclusive and cohesive community.

Creating the space for local young people to talk about their experiences and generate solutions is essential to creating an inclusive community. The Think Tank provided a platform for young people to discuss issues, strengthening community resilience and harmony and creating a safer community for all.
