Engaging Youth in Political Issues

The Problem

People think that we give more than we actually do to foreign aid. The community thinks that young people do not engage with Members of Parliament or have no interest or opportunity to do so.

The Solution

The solution mobilised young people involved in VGen, World Vision's youth movement, within schools and universities to engage with their Members of Parliament on Australia's commitment to the increase in foreign aid. 15 -20 young people met with their local politician. Sent emails to all politicians within their electorate. 5 University students made a short video to Q&A addressed to World Visions CEO Tim Costello asking about attitudes to foreign aid.
