Greater Dandenong City Council has partnered with VicHealth to create communities where young people grow up active, socially connected and healthy.

The last stage of the initiative is to work with children, young people and local stakeholders to create solutions for better health for young people in the City of Greater Dandenong. 

We're seeking young people aged 12-18 years and local stakeholders to participate in an interactive workshop, to share their experiences and aspirations for a healthy and active future.


COVID Update: While not compulsory we strongly suggest wearing a mask at Council facilities and at Council events.

What is this project about?

Council has partnered with VicHealth on a three-year project to create communities where children and young people grow up active, socially connected, and healthy. A series of interactive workshops will be delivered to capture the voices, ideas, and experiences of children and young people, to inspire more creative local solutions.    

What will the information be collected and used for?

The information collected will remain completely anonymous and confidential - no person will be identifiable. Information will be used to understand what are the key issues impacting the health and wellbeing of young people in Greater Dandenong, and how programs can be designed to engage and increase young people's healthy eating, physical activity, and mental wellbeing.

All participants will be provided with updates about the project after the workshops, and receive information on any resulting programs that are delivered because of the workshops.
