Welcome to Voices of the Maranoa

A platform for young people to speak about climate change and the global issues impacting on their lives. 

This project responds to the urgent problem that young people’s perspectives – particularly those in regional and rural Australia, including Southwest Queensland – are marginalised in public debate and policy making on climate action. As such, the project posed two key research questions:

  1. How are young people’s interests and perspectives framed and represented in media coverage of climate change impacts in Southwest Queensland?

  2. How can participatory journalism practices, informed by a critical transmedia methodology, amplify young people’s voices in media discourses on climate change and its impacts on regional and rural Queensland?

The journey

Students and the project leads travelled on a field trip to Roma, Goondiwindi, St George, and Condamine. During the seven days, we actively practised journalism techniques to capture the stories and experiences of young people in rural Queensland.
