Banyule Youth Summit 2021

Due to COVID-19, the planned 2020 Banyule Youth Summit had to be postponed. We plan to hold the event in early to mid 2021. More details to come.

Banyule Youth Summit 2018

Banyule Council held their biennial Youth Summit on May 15, 2018.  Over 100 young people attended and engaged in passionate discussion around topics of interest to them. A series of recommendations were presented to a packed house of supporters of young people. Council are committed to working with young people and community partners to ensure the proposed recommendations are put into action.

On October 8, 2018, a report containing the recommendations from the Summit were presented to Council. The report was adopted and the young people involved in the Summit were congratulated for their efforts and commitment.

A Report Card event will be held in 2019 as a means to report back to the community on these actions.

A Report Card event was held on the 25th of July to present back on the projects that were undertaken as a direct outcome from the recommendations from the 2018 Banyule Youth Summit. Young people dedicated their time and were involved extensively during the consultation and the implementation process on the various projects alongside Council to make recommendations a reality.
