Young People Leading Healthier Communities Consultation

Two girls on brick wall

Greater Dandenong City Council has partnered with VicHealth to create communities where young people grow up active, socially connected and healthy.

The first stage of the initiative is to work with children and young people to hear their voices, ideas and experiences and inspire more creative local solutions - and we need your help to do this.

Council is seeking young people aged 12-18 years to participate in a series of interactive workshops to share their experiences and aspirations for a healthy and active future.
