The Heywire Summit Ideas Launch

The ABC invites you to The Heywire Summit Ideas Launch at 11am Thursday 9 February, Parliament House Theatre.

Young regional and rural Australians telling it like it is!

Be inspired as the ABC Heywire Regional Youth Summit participants share their stories and pitch ideas for positive change in regional and rural Australia.

The Heywire Summit (3-9 Feb 2017) aims to give young regional and rural Australians a voice in Canberra, on the ABC and in their communities.  During the Summit delegates tackle the issues that are important to them and develop ideas aimed at improving life for young people in regional Australia.

The ideas presented at the Heywire Summit Ideas Launch will be adopted all over Australia, with the support of FRRR ABC Heywire Youth Innovation Grants from the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.
