Thank you for taking the time to participate in this survey. In PNG young people under the age of 35 make up about 70% of the population therefore it is critical they have a say on issues affecting their lives. The Constitutional Law Reform Commission has requested that public submissions be made on the laws relating to the use and abuse of alcohol and drugs and representation of special interest groups in Parliament. This survey is an opportunity for young people aged 18-35 to have their voices heard through this important public consultation process.

The information gathered will be summarised as a ‘youth voice’ on these two issues and given to the Constitutional Law Reform Commission. The end goal is that this ‘youth voice’ will influence the laws relating to Drug and Alcohol abuse and the PNG Electoral process.

The survey has been organised by a group or coalition of PNG organisations who work with young people. These organisations include The Voice Inc, The PNG Cancer Foundation, Eco-Services Limited, The PNG Tribal Foundation, Inter Youth Wave Rally and more. The aim of the survey is to gather feedback from at least 1000 young people across PNG.

All information you provide is confidential and will be kept safe. The survey results will be shared at; http://thevoicepng.org/ .For more information email; info@thevoicepng.org
