What is Evatt SA?

Evatt SA is the state’s round of Australia’s largest schools diplomacy competition, for students in Years 9-12.

Placing young Australians in the shoes of UN Security Council representatives, Evatt provides students with a deeper understanding of worldwide issues and the skills they need for global citizenship.

Taking on the role of international diplomats, jump straight into the hard-and-fast world of global diplomacy as you battle to form complex solutions to international security conflicts from the Syrian crisis to the use of torture by governments worldwide.

But things aren’t as they seemall the while, you’ll be secretly pursuing the hidden agenda of your chosen country.

It’s fast and furious, but as delegates you’ll develop your leadership, negotiation, public-speaking and critical thinking skills, and gain a practical understanding of international politics. Plus, you could even be crowned Australia’s top student-diplomat at the Evatt National Finals!
