Youth Councilor Remus Brasier

Pronouns: (He/Him)

Remus Brasier is a fifth-year City of Greater Bendigo Youth Councillor, joining the organisation in 2020. At that time, he was the youngest-ever Youth Councillor. 

Since then, Remus has taken on many leadership positions. These include serving as the first Chair of the Advocacy working group in 2021, being elected Deputy Youth Mayor in 2022 (and re-elected in 2023), and served as Acting Youth Mayor until the election of the 2024 Youth Mayor in February.

In leadership, Remus has enjoyed collaborating with other Youth Councillors to shape and improve the Youth Council, mentoring future leaders to take a more active role in youth advocacy along the way. In addition to this, his particular passions are the environment, public safety, strategic planning, and Greater Bendigo’s long-term development. 

Since 2022, Remus has represented the Youth Council on the Arts & Creative Industries Committee. That same year, Remus was part of the Youth Council’s team at the 36th Victorian Youth Parliament, where he achieved the prestigious honour of being awarded Best Speaker in the Legislative Assembly by the presiding officers of the chamber.

In 2024, Remus is now the longest-serving Youth Councillor in the current Youth Council. He wants to continue the group’s advocacy on Public Safety, LGBTQIA+ inclusion, and expanding the influence of students at educational institutions around Greater Bendigo. Further, he looks forward to helping new Youth Councillors find their passion for advocacy, helping to make Greater Bendigo a better place for everyone to live, work, learn and grow.
