At electionWIRE we were lucky to have a number of partner organisations on board to help us keep the project moving forward. Our partners stepped in to help with training, promoted our content through their networks, and uploaded videos to the YouTube channel.
Centre For Policy Development
The Centre for Policy Development (CPD) is a public interest think tank dedicated to seeking out creative, viable ideas and innovative research to inject into Australia’s policy debates. Ben Eltham and Eva Cox are CPD fellows who undertook training sessions with electionWIRE reporters at the outset of the project.
Melbourne-based Express Media provides support and development opportunities for young Australians in writing and media. During the 2010 election campaign, Express Media published a blog titled Electioneering which featured the work of a select team of young political journalists across the country. In addition to their great original content, Electioneering also featured electionWIRE videos as part of their coverage.
Left Right Think Tank
Left Right Think Tank is Australia’s think-tank of young people and works to provide a platform for ideas and education for and about young people. Based in five cities across the country, Left Right Think Tank seeks to develop high-impact policy by young people focused on the long term across the entire policy spectrum, not just on youth related issues.
Australian Youth Affairs Coalition
The Australian Youth Affairs Coalition (AYAC) is Australia’s non-government youth affairs peak body. AYAC aims to represent the rights and interests of young people at a national and international level, promote the well-being of young Australians, promote the fuller participation of young people in Australian society, and to provide policy advice to government and the broader community on issues affecting young people and the youth sector.
