“I want to have a future”

In early 2023, we sent out postcards to schools across the ACT asking students to respond to the following question:

What are your hopes for the environment?

We wanted to better understand young people’s views on environmental issues, both in the ACT and on a larger scale. A total of 683 postcards came back to us from young people ranging from 4 to 18 years old.

Our report highlights some key insights from young people’s responses. It also gives a set of recommendations about our environment as voiced by young people in the ACT.

A selection of the postcards we received can be viewed below.
