The AEDC is a census that helps create a snapshot of early childhood development in Australia. This census takes place every 3 years and the next one will happen in 2015.
The ACT Government is developing a commitment for children and young people. The commitment will set a vision for a whole-of-government and whole-of-community approach to promote the rights of children and young people.
Throughout May and June 2014, we sought your advice on What is important for children and young people in Canberra?
