|Subtitle||The "17 year old issue" in QLD|
In Queensland, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child is breached every day as 17 year olds are charged and imprisoned as adults.
The Castaway campaign highlights that young people have the responsibilities of adults without the rights of adults, so they are legal castaways.
The project will facilitate 100 young people to write 100 individual messages to be placed in a bottle and sent to 100 community leaders as a "message in a bottle." The campaign will also be supported by social media.
