The purpose of the petition is to raise support for a National Student Concession Card.
The reciprocal recognition of student concessions is a problem facing all students.
A National Student Concession Card is important because:
1. Students do not have universal access to concessions schemes (such as student public transport concessions) outside their home state;
2. A national concession scheme exists for those holding a senior or pensioner cards but currently nothing similar exists for primary, secondary and tertiary students;
3. The card would offer students another form of identity to use other than a state government issued ‘Proof of Age’ card. This is important as some student cards are very basic, vary in form and are not recognised as formal identification;
4. The card may be able to provide students with a range of third party benefits from students services, and potential recognition for Australian students travelling internationally.
