Annual Report to Children and Young People 2020-2021

Where young people live, the facilities available to them locally, and their ease of access to school, activities and employment have an enormous impact on their lives and can mean the difference between getting on well in life and being impoverished. However, their views are seldom considered.

The voices of children and young people will be critical to the success of the City Plan to understand how they want to live, work, learn, play and connect with their capital city. Adelaide City Council must meaningfully and appropriately engage with children and young people to thoroughly understand their unique and diverse current needs, and their valuable perspectives as the voice of future generations.

The Commissioner strongly urges the Adelaide City Council to incorporate the voices of children and young people into the process of consultation on the City Plan 2036 through specific and intentional consultation.
