HOLLY Ransom recalls a 'really strange phone call' in 2013 from then Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

"Twenty countries coming together, which made up 85 per cent of the world's GDP, 70 per cent of world trade, two-thirds of world population and home to 1.5 billion young people.
"I asked one of my mentors why young people weren't getting involved. One guess is that they had never really been invited to the table or, if they had been invited, they didn't really know how to show up."
