Street safety is a broad community issue and for young people today growing up in WA’s cities or regional towns, how to stay street safe is an evolving concern.

The theme of 2020's Your Call competition challenges you to explore the many different ways you can reduce the risks associated with going out and having fun. Work together to find strategies to avoid dangerous situations and stay safe.

This broad theme can touch on a number of interconnected issues, including:

  • going out at night

  • catching public transport, bus, train, taxi and ride share safety

  • pedestrian and road safety

  • how drug and alcohol affects decision making and can increase risks

  • attending parties and underage drinking

  • loitering and curfew laws

  • drink spiking and sexual assaults

  • street fights and coward punches

  • muggings and theft.
