Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR)

More than 30 school-aged students will ‘takeover’ Lismore from 20 May to 24 May to share their stories as part of the ABC’s Takeover Youth Summit.

The Summit is a partnership between the ABC, the Office for Youth; Department of Employment and Workplace Relations and FRRR.

Thirty-four students have been selected to have their stories and ideas featured on the ABC during the Summit and beyond. The winning stories showcase the diversity and bravery of young people in the region.

To further back these ideas, FRRR will be offering support to community organisations to adopt and adapt the ideas developed by Summit participants.

Natalie Egleton, FRRR CEO, said, “FRRR is inspired to be part of their journey and to invest in the local community so young people can have a powerful say in the future of their region.”

Takeover Lismore winners will be featured across the ABC during the week of 20 May 2024.
