“This book aims to be an accessible resource about significant issues in our society today and an inspiration for young people engaged in writing about experiences, observations and concerns they feel are important.
The book is in two parts.  The first part features writing by leading Australian thinkers, Larissa Behrendt, Max Charlesworth, Glyn Davis, Julian Disney, Michael Kirby, Ian Lowe, Fiona Stanley and David Yencken.  They address various issues; climate change, children, democracy, Indigenous discrimination, higher education, housing, sexuality and bioethics.
the second part of the book contains selected essays submitted for the Future Leaders Writers’ Prize and Future Leaders Climate Writing Award in 2007.  The writing by talented young Australian covers many issues including depression, racism, homelessness, nuclear waste and the war on terror.
The writers’ clarity of thought and analysis and skill in communicating the issues under discussion is cause for much hope. ”
