Qld Youth Week – Youth Research Showcase

Opening day of Queensland Youth Week, celebrating  research projects created by and for young Queenslanders

Queensland Youth Week presents Youth Research Showcase

Come along to this public showcase of the youth researchers and their projects funded under the Queensland Government’s Youth Research Grant (YRG) program, provided across seven Queensland Universities to stimulate interest in research which reflects the needs and views of young people through enabling them to be involved in setting priorities and selection of research projects.The YRG program has allowed for young people to directly influence research priorities, which they can they use as a tool to advocate for positive change for all young Queenslanders.The program includes projects covering all sorts of topics like climate change and environmental sustainability, health and wellbeing, sustainable development and communities, and future foods. No need to RSVP, just show up and be ready to engage with some seriously cool projects, including ‘Meating Culture’, a digital solution to get us all munching on alternative protein products (yum!). And then there’s ‘The Sentiment Log’, where you’ll get an inside look into what it’s like to be a young person living in regional South East Queensland.
