eSafety Youth Council's open letter to Big Tech
What is the eSafety Youth Council?
The eSafety Youth Council was appointed in 2022 and is made up of 24 young people from across Australia.
The Council gives young people an avenue to influence on issues that matter most to them by engaging in meaningful discussion and sharing their knowledge and experiences with eSafety. It also offers as an opportunity to share insights for policy and program design on online safety issues now and into the future.
Members are aged between 13 to 24 years. They have a range of experiences, come from various places across Australia and represent different genders and cultures.
The Council was informed by recommendations from the Western Sydney University Youth Engagement Report, commissioned by eSafety and co-designed with young people. The report explored the online experiences of Young Australians and their concerns and ideas for the future.
Why are young people's voices important?
There are many ways that young people can lead and influence change.
The Council enables them to have their say and offer a valuable perspective about the issues they face online. The diversity of the group encourages different points of view about online issues and industry, and these can be readily shared with eSafety and Government.
