I was fortunate enough to be Speaker for a session of the YMCA Victoria Youth Parliament, where I presided over a debate on a bill for increased opportunities for homeless youth.

Congratulations to the Swinburne University of Technology team, the South-East Koori Mob and all other teams for their substantive, well informed contributions to the debate. I also had the opportunity to chair the adjournment debate, where members spoke on issues such as gender equality, climate change, animals and more. It was a privilege to hear young people speak passionately about these important matters.
