This is a space for young Queenslanders to have their say about issues, projects, programs and policies which are important to them.

Shape our future on gender equality

Share your view, shape our future

Is gender equality important to you? We want to hear from all Queenslanders including males aged 15 to 25 years, so we can hear how everyone can be afforded the same opportunities and treated equally.

Have your say on how Queensland can reduce organic waste

We want to hear from you about how Queensland can reduce the amount of organic waste that goes to landfill and look at other ways to avoid, reuse and recycle.

Have your say on banning more single-use plastic items

Queensland's ban on single-use plastic straws, stirrers, plates, bowls with lids and cutlery, and expanded polystyrene takeaway food containers and cups started on 1 September 2021. The Queensland Government is interested in your feedback on the proposal to expand the ban to include other single-use or unnecessary plastic items.

Have your say on Queensland’s future climate action

We’d like to know what actions Queenslanders are taking to reduce emissions and build your resilience at home and in your community. We’d also like to understand how we can support you to take climate action.

I have a story about climate action to share

We would love to hear about how Queenslanders are taking climate action in their own home, community or business.
