The Parks Have It forum was the result of a partnership between the Department of Planning and Community Development, the Office for Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship, the Youth Affairs Council of Victoria and Parks Victoria.
The purpose of the form was to explore young people's engagement with the natural environment by providing an opportunity to share innovative ways to engage young people in environmental issues, inspire participation and promote the benefits of the outdoors. The forum started with a welcome from Kate Colvin, the Chief Executive Officer at YACVic, who introduced how the forum will bring together ideas around young people's wellbeing, nature and participation.
