During the election we often heard that people are confused about how Australia is governed, how voters can communicate with their elected officials and how we, as individuals can be more active citizens.
So, Voices of Wentworth is exploring ways to provide engaging and helpful civics education - for people who would like a refresher so they can better engage in advocacy, or for people who may have missed out learning about democracy and civics at school.
If this sparks your interest (either because you are involved in civics education or because you know a group who may be interested in learning) please get in touch with us here. We would particularly like to chat with anyone who teaches civics at high school so we can learn from your experience.
And if you'd like to test your knowledge-base - check out these fab quizzes by the Parliamentary Education Office.....it's enlightening!
