Although delayed due to COVID-19, the Foundation has continued to work on building the collaboration model to support the Menzies Youth Leadership initiative.
The initiative aims to use cultural probes to support young people’s response to ethical issues. Based on these responses, a selected group of these young people will come together to develop the resources to support a deeper engagement with ethics and consider ways to develop the enquiry and action learning methodology to build insight and ethical capability.
