What do you think would make the lives of Australia's children and young people better? Over the next few months Megan Mitchell, Australia’s first ever Children’s Commissioner, is travelling to all over Australia talking to as many children and young people as she can. It’s called The Big Banter.

Did you know that 89% of Australians aged 13-17 told us that they had experienced racism or seen it happen to someone else? That’s not cool! We want to see an Australia where everyone is treated with respect, no matter what their skin colour, background or culture. Do you?
