Civics Symbols: Taking Action

Now you will need to make recommendations on changes that you believe will improve the ways the flag is used in Australia. How could the positive consequences be increased and the negative ones reduced or eliminated? Would it take new laws, new rules, more education or even a new flag? Who would make the changes happen? Would it be the government, schools, the media or someone else?

These 2 examples might get you thinking.

Test your ideas to see whether you have thought it through carefully. You could either use a SWOT chart or a PNQ chart.

Discuss with your teacher whether you could send your recommendations to your local council, entertainment organiser or Member of Parliament for consideration.
