Power and influence over your environment are important democratic rights for all people. The concept of having your say and being heard are issues that are fought over frequently. People who are vulnerable or disadvantaged in our society are less likely to have a voice, due to the barriers created by our inequitable environmental, political and social structures. Young people are often overlooked or excluded due to false assumptions that they do not have the ideas and maturity to contribute to important debates.
Create a Better State is all about South Australia and you. It's about the things that underpin the social fabric of our state and how you can make a difference when the State election rolls around in March 2010. We're not party-political and we're not going to tell you how to vote...we just ask you to do it thoughtfully. And on this website there are some tools and tips to help you do that.
