Young people envision their communities

The Think+DO Tank proposed a series of consultations with high school students in the Bankstown Local Government Area for the Bankstown City Council. The workshops were carried out between 1 September – 30 November 2009. We worked with over 250 students to uncover their desires for Bankstown, what they value in their communities and to educate them about the role of local, State and Commonwealth governments. A report was provided to Council in January 2010 and we look forward to helping Council to implement our recommendations.

The young people with whom we worked were generous and imaginative. We would like to thank the students of these schools for their hard work and and their vision!

Thank you to the students of:

  • Mount St Joseph’s School
  • Birrong Girls High School
  • Sir Joseph Banks High School
  • Birrong Boys High School
  • Bass High School
  • Malek Fahd Islamic School
