Summary In Their Own Hands: Can young people change Australia? documents and celebrates young people’s active participation in social, political and civic life and describes the many ways in which they are leading vital social change. At the same time, it critically examines the barriers to this participation and questions the degree to which the voice of young people is genuinely valued in Australia.Young people are often characterised as disengaged and apathetic. This book challenges that view while providing a set of needed signposts for change at the level of core social institutions and processes. The book draws on the work of The Foundation for Young Australians and its legacy of significant research into the education, wellbeing and participation of young Australians. It also draws on the expertise of renowned commentators in youth research, policy and practice.
