National consultation on disaster risk and climate change: children and young people

This survey is for Australian children and youth aged between 10 and 24 years. It includes 27 questions on climate change, natural hazards and disaster risk.

The results of the survey will be published in a report on the views and experiences of Australian children and young people on disaster risk and climate change. Similar surveys are being run across the Asia-Pacific region. The results of all surveys will be compiled in an Asia-Pacific report.

These reports will be used by children and youth attending the 2020 Asia Pacific Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction being held in Brisbane in June 2020.
