Date: Wed, 24/02/2010

The Youth Network of Tasmania and Tasmanian Youth Forum, together with TASCOSS‟ Our Island Our Voices, held their first election forum on Wednesday 24 February 2010 at Parliament House, Hobart.

The event was held to give young Tasmanians the opportunity to have their voices heard on issues that are important to them.

The event was open to young people between 12-25 years, with 93 young people from across the state in attendance on the day.

The interest in this event from young Tasmanians shows that they are passionate about having their voices heard and learning about how they can have an impact in the decision making in their community.

Labor‟s Lisa Singh MP, Tasmanian Liberal‟s Vanessa Goodwin MLC and Tasmanian Green‟s Nick McKim MP participated in the forum.
