Kelly Encourages Youth to Complete Cyber-Safety Survey
Date: 21 April 2011
Federal Member for Eden-Monaro, Mike Kelly, today encouraged young people in Eden-Monaro to take part in a new Parliamentary Survey on Cyber Safety.
The Federal Parliament’s Joint Select Committee on Cyber-Safety is conducting an online survey of Australians aged 5-18 years to gain insight into their experiences online.
Mike Kelly has welcomed the initiative taken by the Committee.
“It is important for Parliamentary Committees to actively engage the public and seek their views,” Mike Kelly said.
“This survey presents an opportunity for young people in our region to inform the committee of their experiences.”
To ensure the survey is audience appropriate, the Committee has developed two questionnaires: one for participants aged 5-12 years, and the other for those from 13-18 years. The survey is completely anonymous.
The Committee’s online survey of youth is one of the consultative strategies undertaken and will be conducted from 18 March 2011 to Wednesday 27th April. The survey is available at www.aph.gov.au/cybersafety.
“I encourage all local schools in our region to allocate time for their students to participate,” Mike Kelly concluded.
