What children would do if they were in charge in Australia
In the lead up to National Children’s Week, Save the Children Australia asked children and young people across Australia what they would do for children if they were in charge of the country. National Children’s Week (20th -28th of October) is a week that for us at Save the Children celebrates the contribution children make to the community and every child’s right to enjoy their youth. We believe that listening to children is an important part of developing children’s policy and legislation. Every day, decisions are made that affect children and too often no attempt is made to explain or prepare children for the consequences of these decisions. This video outlines what children think is important and what changes children want the Australian government to make.
