Youth Strategy 2014-2019: Delivering a youth-friendly city

Brisbane City Council's Youth Strategy 2014-2019 is an integrated whole-of-Council approach to ensure we continue to be an organisation that values and includes young people in the life of Brisbane.

Our vision is for a city where young people are healthy, resilient and confident young citizens who actively contribute to a better Brisbane.

We are committed to working with young people, the community and other levels of government to ensure all young people who live, work, play and/or study in Brisbane are engaged, empowered, included and celebrated.

Your say

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on the Draft Strategy for Young People from April-July 2013. We had a great response from young people aged 12-25 years, their families, carers and guardians, industry groups and community organisations. Feedback from these groups helped us to develop the final strategy.
