The Platform

What is the website for?

WhyNot is a new online space for young Australians supported by the YMCA in Australia. WhyNot is for young Australians, by young Australians – it’s a platform to amplify our voices, support and learn from each other, and resist stereotypes. We have opinions just like everyone else – and we deserve to be heard.

What is the WhyNot platform

The WhyNot platform was created by the YMCA in Australia to help young voices be heard by those in power. We know what matters to us, so why not let us tell our own stories?

Research says only 20% of young Australians aged 18 to 24 years feel able to speak up within their community about important issues. We say this isn’t good enough!
