Daphne Daniels from Ngukurr

“Young people don’t want to attend, but if you want to know why you have to look back to the governance training, it wasn’t a priority of the organisation, but it is a priority for us.”

Daphne is talking about young people in Ngukurr not attending L.A. meetings. Elders recognise that attending the L.A. meetings is an important learning experience for young people learning how to do governance in the community. However, they are finding that young people do not want to attend, and they see this as an outcome of them not being included in the governance training programs set up at the initiation of the Local Authorities.
