Greetings everyone,

The Australia Youth Summit was held this weekend past, and next weekend the 
'Grown Up' Australia 2020 Summit is due to be held in Canberra.

Back in February James Purser and I mentioned the importance of the 
Australia 2020 Summit, and that it was a valuable and unique opportunity 
for the LA community to have direct input into the government policy making 

The Australia 2020 Summit is not meant to be a gab fest, but in a sense an 
attempt to wiki-ise a portion of Government policy, and give Australians 
the opportunity to suggest the changes they deem necessary. Ordinary 
Australians could nominate themselves to attend, and make submissions on 
any of the Summit topic.

The Summit Topics are worth reading in detail:


So I have two questions to the LA list:

    1) Was any of the LA members successful in their nominations to attend?

    2) Did any LA members make submissions before they closed last week?

For the reference of the community here's my five submissions. I intended 
to make a submission on all 10 of the summit topics, but ran out of time 
due to personal commitments. My submissions are from my head and heart, so 
naturally include FOSS.


How did other LA members go?
