Do you have an idea about how Anzac Day shouldbe commemorated? Between 2014 and 2018 Australia will commemorate the Anzac Centenary, marking 100 years since our involvement in the First World War. During this time we will all remember not only the Anzacs who served at Gallipoli and the Western Front, but all Australian servicemen and women, including those who fought along the Kokoda Track and at Tobruk; those who were held as prisoners of war; those who fought on the seas and in the skies; and those who served from Korea and Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Australian Government have established a Commission to look in to how Australian’s should commemorate the Anzac Centenary. For more information about the Commission head to www.anzaccentenary.gov.au
A group of people (through YouthGAS) are passionate about ensuring that the Anzac spirit lives on. Therefore we want to hear from young people aged 12-30 about how we should commemorate the Anzac Centenary. We will then collate this information into a submission which hopefully reflects the views of young people from around Australia. If you would like to take part in our survey follow this link
Regards, Hayley, on behalf of How Should We Remember
