What is Active Citizenship?

In its simplest form, Active Citizenship means getting involved in your community.  Looking out for and helping those that need support and also behaving in a way that promotes mutual respect, fairness, inclusion and a sense of belonging for all.​

Whatever your school does to encourage active citizenship is fine; our goal for Aussie of the Month is simple. We seek to educate all young people about the importance of community participation and looking out for those who need support.
