Every Voice Counts! 2006 - From the Students

The Every Voice Counts! Student Forum is held in Canberra as part of Celebrating Democracy Week. The forum brings together students from all over Australia to debate topical civics and citizenship education issues, and to participate in an intensive three-day program of experiential civics and citizenship education. The topic for 2006 was 'Living harmoniously in our democracy. How young people can influence the future of our democracy'. Read what the student participants had to say about their experiences in their reports below.
