New ideas for a youthful Adelaide

Posted on: Mon 15 Apr 2019

Young people say they want to live in a place that recognises the fresh ideas, perspectives, enthusiasm, skills and value they bring to the table.

These were some of the many perspectives captured in the Youthful Cities report, launched during SA Youth Week.

SA Commissioner for Children and Young People, Helen Connolly, met with 130 young people between the ages of 12 and 22, in August and November of last year, to find out what they thought would make the city of Adelaide a more youthful place.

Mimona, Joseph, Charlotte, Sam, Ned and Rebecca, were among the people who took part and they shared their ideas with Small Change‘s Lisa Burns.
