An Update from Conference 2012
Our committee of tertiary volunteers and I have been working hard over summer to prepare for the National Conference’s arrival in Melbourne in July, after seven years elsewhere and what is to be a busy year in 2012.
Already we can confirm the generous support of the University of Melbourne, Monash University, the City of Melbourne, Newman College and the Foundation for Young Australians. The conference will canvas topics that touch upon justice in a local, Australian and Global context elaborating upon the manner through which justice underpins our everyday lives.
Student delegates will travel around Melbourne’s CBD to debate in key historic venues and take part in cultural excursions with various community organisations and social enterprises to tackle justice issues creatively.
We’re honoured to announce that Chief Justice Marilyn Warren will formally open the conference on July 9th, we are currently in the process of approaching a variety of speakers on topics ranging from Australian Indigenous Constitutional Recognition, Justice in conflict and the origins of Human Rights.
We look forward to witnessing the culmination of two years of effort as we invite guests from across Australia and the Asia-Pacific to join with us and Strive for Justice in 2012.
