George Bernard Shaw was once quoted as saying, "Youth is wasted on the young", but Chris Hayes, Federal Member for Fowler, could not disagree more.

"I am constantly amazed at the ideas and foresight that our young people have - their enthusiasm is infectious and we should embrace many of their thoughts."

"Their age should never be dismissed and we can all learn a lot from listening to our young people," Chris Hayes said.

National Youth Week is being celebrated from 8-17 April and encourages young people to share ideas, discuss youth issues and generally have a bit of fun.

"I am privileged in my role as an MP to have the opportunity to interact with young people across our diverse community. They are our future leaders and have a great insight into current issues," Chris Hayes said.
