Future leaders debate the issues

MEET the young Ipswich people who are part of this year's YMCA Queensland Youth Parliament.

Liam Lunney will represent Ipswich, Ebony-Lee Corbyn will represent Ipswich West and Mia Reimers will voice the concerns of the Bundamba area.

Liam said he was excited to represent the Ipswich area.

"So far I've met with Ian Berry and with councillor Cheryl Bromage to hear about residents' concerns," Liam said.

"It's good to discuss the issues that our generation will have to deal with."

The parliament is made up of people aged from 15-25, who meet to discuss community issues and write and debate their own bills.
