The launch event will kick off with a welcome address by Karim Temsamani whom is the Managing Director for Google Australia and NZ.

From there will be an address by Kate Lundy, Senator for the ACT and member of the Australian Labor Party then it's onward to speeches by Joe Hockey, MP and Shadow Treasurer of the Aus Liberal Party and Mr Doug Orr, State Manager for NSW division of the Aus Electoral Commission.

In conclusion of the event, there will be a panel discussion with Kate Lundy, Joe Hockey, Mr Doug Orr, several media, school students and videos submitted via YouTube.
