Strathbogie Shire’s Youth Parliament team successfully passed a bill to ban single-use plastic bags at the 32nd YMCA Victoria Youth Parliament Program.

A team of six young people representing the Strathbogie Shire spent three days in the chambers of Victoria’s State Parliament House debating 20 bills brought forward by 120 young people from across the state.

The Strathbogie Shire Youth team’s bill proposed a Single Use Plastic Bag Commission which would be responsible for phasing out single-use plastic bags in Victorian businesses over twelve months.

It also proposed that any excess bags be used for bitumen on roads across Victoria.

Youth Parliament Team and Strathbogie Shire Evolve Youth Committee member, Malachi Wild said the discussions about single-use plastic bags started at a Youth Politics Camp several months ago and evolved into the Youth Parliament Program.

“I thought it was a great opportunity to get the voice of young people in our area out to the public and to politicians who are able to change things,” Mr Wild said.

“It was such a great environment to be a part of, with 120 passionate young people from all over Victoria sharing our opinions and thoughts on different issues that are affecting us.”

Strathbogie Shire Youth Development Officer, Andy Bell said this was the first time Council has supported a team to attend the Youth Parliament Program.

“The Victorian Youth Parliament Program is a fantastic way for young people to get a greater understanding about the way government works and how they can be involved in the democratic process,” Mr Bell explained.

“It is fantastic to see such a positive outcome for single-use plastic bags and the opportunity for local young people to have real influence at a state level.”

“We are so proud of our local Youth Parliament Team and would like to congratulate them on their success.”

Euroa locals Dustin Perry and Steven Jeffery and their families are hosting their annual Cure Brain Cancer Fundraiser film at the Euroa Community Cinema on Friday 26th July at 6.30pm.

Recently released Toy Story 4 will be played on the big screen and attendees are encouraged to come early for prizes, lollies and other mischief.

Dustin and Steven are encouraging the community to come along dressed up as their favourite Toy Story character, with prizes for best costume up for grabs.

Dustin Perry said this is the third year they have ran the event, which has been hugely successful in the past.

“Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease, and the brain cancer survival rate of approximately 20% has hardly improved for over 30 years,” Mr Perry explained.

“Brain cancer kills the equivalent of a classroom full of kids every year, and in 2017 our daughter Chloe was one of them. 

This is why I worked so hard to develop the Australian Brain Cancer Mission with the Federal Government, its why I'm on the Strategic Advisory Board for the Australian Brain Cancer Mission at Cancer Australia, its why I'm now working with Cure Brain Cancer full time, and its why events like this are so important to raise money to fund research and treatments to improve the outcomes for people with brain cancer."
