I had the opportunity to provide the closing remarks to 120 young parliamentarians at this year's 30th Victorian Youth Parliament.
During the past 30 years, more than two dozen laws passed in Victoria have had their origin in Youth Parliament, including mandatory wearing of bike helmets and over-the-counter availability of the morning-after pill.This year, proposals debated included:

- to reform veteran support and access to mental healthcare

- public transport concessions

- easing restrictions on breast milk donations.


The program is co-ordinated by the Victorian Parliament and the YMCA.

Victoria Youth Parliament is a program designed to give young Victorians between the ages of 16 - 25 a chance to be heard at the highest levels of State Government, on a wide range of issues relevant to young people's lives.
