Speak Out event series

The Queensland Government is committed to ensuring young people can have their say in policies and programs which affect them.

The Speak Out series is an opportunity to join other young Queenslanders (15-25 years) to help shape your future by speaking out on topics that are most important to you through face-to-face events.

Parental/guardian consent is required for all young people under 18 years.

Previous Speak Outs

This year we’ve visited Ipswich, Logan, Sunshine Coast, Mount Isa, Mossman Gorge, Rockhampton and Brisbane, where young people joined us in a beautiful outdoor environment for activities and energising discussions on matters that were important to them including:

  • the environment
  • mental health
  • consent
  • youth engagement
  • local issues.
