Co-design Challenge

Year in Review Report

YLab established the COVID-19 co-design challenge to understand the challenges young people are facing within the context of COVID-19 and design innovative solutions to these problems. 

In our YLab Year in Review, we use survey and project data to look back at our 2019 successes and impact, detail case studies of some of our most important work, and meet all the young people who made it all happen.

Testimonials

The member for Murray Plains and I attended the Swan Hill YLab, with the parliamentarians leaving with a better understanding of youth issues and youth perceptions of Parliament and the young participants leaving with a better understanding of our democracy and a number of them planning to enrol to vote.

Peter Crisp

Minister of Parliament, Victoria

Thank you for the opportunity to attend the Love and Money workshop over the weekend. It was a fantastic one and I felt very invigorated after! I have worked in the public sector in Melbourne and have come to the conclusion that there aren't enough young people, particularly people of colour, involved in urban planning and shaping design strategies in their cities.
