Yarn About Youth
Reconciliation Australia and the Australian Youth Affairs Coalition have launched a report on the first ever national survey of young peoples attitudes to reconciliation.
The survey found the majority of young Australians have a strong desire to advance reconciliation—but less than half know how to go about it.
The Yarn about Youth survey gathered data from 740 young people aged 15-26 on their attitudes towards reconciliation. Results indicate that the majority of young people believe trust between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians is low but 90% think the relationship is important.
