Youth to spread positivity


Tate Papworth

Brimbank’s youth are being encouraged to spread positivity.

There’s no denying times are tough, but we’re all in this together and as such, young people aged between 12-25 are being asked to join a new video campaign that will showcase their voices, positivity and resilience during the COVID-19 crisis.

Mayor Georgina Papafotiou said the deadline for expressions of interest has been extended to July 31.

“Young people in our diverse community are doing some wonderful work during the pandemic, looking after not only themselves, but also their loved ones, such as translating and relaying important health information to members of their household or family,” Cr Papafotiou said.

“We want to hear about what life has looked like for you – whether that’s learning or working from home, looking after yourself and others, helping your community, your hopes for the future after the pandemic – or simply what it is like being a young person at this time.”

Entrants will be asked to record a simple video of themselves responding to three question revolving around how they’ve looked after themselves, the community and their vision for the world going forward.
