About The Tour

In January 2020, we took 16 young leaders from across Australia on a four-week tour of the United States of America to explore the current state of American politics.

We unpacked the intricacies of American politics through briefly looking into history and exploring the places, people, and forces that have shaped America as we know it. In each state, we visited monuments, museums, and memorials to better understand how notable events in American history have led us to where we are now.

We met with politicians, diplomats, think-tanks, NGOs, and activists who are all currently interacting in a tumultuous time in American history. As well as attended consultations, we ran a series of interactive, educational workshops designed by UN Youth Australia.
