ACT Conference 2022

Are you an ACT or regional NSW student from Years 9 to 12 who is passionate about raising their voice and learning valuable leadership skills? Do you want to make a change? Are you interested in global affairs, international relations or diplomacy? Are you interested in making friends from across the territory? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, we’d love to see you at ACT Conference 2022.

ACT Conference is UN Youth ACT’s flagship event: a two-and-a-half-day residential conference where delegates will participate in workshops, engage with speaker panels, represent a country in the UN General Assembly during Model UN Debates, and have the opportunity to make their voices heard!

The theme for the 2022 Conference is International Law. Through a variety of international activities, delegates will have the opportunities to learn about some of the most pressing global issues of our times, and talk to leading experts in their field during speaker panels.
