Australia’s fastest growing pro-democracy movement has today announced a key strategic partnership with the Foundation of Young Australians (FYA). During his presentation at the Future Assembly conference in Melbourne, MiVote founder, Adam Jacoby, said the partnership with Australia’s leading association of young people is the first of it’s kind for both organisations. 

“FYA currently represents more than 200,000 young Australians – a group in our society who have been largely overlooked by our current democratic system.” This is a significant partnership for young people in Australia who, through the MiVote app and platform, will “finally have a mechanism to better engage, understand and participate in the political system; offering them a seat at the table on every issue.”

MiVote offers young people inclusion and is, therefore, uniquely positioned to engage the millennial demographic with politics. The social and political platform uses blockchain technology to inform, empower and represent the voice and will of the people. The technology and accessibility of the app will no doubt be popular with young Australians, who will be given the opportunity to have “equal voice within the system.”

“The working partnership will give FYA members direct access to the MiVote voting app, adding a crucial perspective to the shaping of destinations that MiVote will present.”

FYA members will be given the opportunity to not only participate in, but lead relevant MiVote advisory groups. A move which Jacoby says ensures “a voice for a group that the current democratic process actively ignores but who will be most affected by the long term decisions we make today.”

This represents the first announcement of a suite of such partnerships with groups throughout Australia that have difficulty having their voice heard. MiVote has embedded structural advisory groups for constituencies including; indigenous, gender equality, industry, rural, migrant communities, public sector, LGBTI, disability and the elderly members of the community. Emerging partnerships will align with each of these groups.
