Children's Voices in Greater Dandenong

Part of being a City of Child Friendly City is listening to the voices of children.

Council has encouraged children to participate by producing a booklet, participating in consultations and sharing their ideas at the 2015 Children's Festival.


'Things we like in Greater Dandenong' Booklet 

As part of the launch of the City of Greater Dandenong's Child Friendly City initiative, a book showcasing what local children like to do in Greater Dandenong was created.
