Our Premier Conference

The UN Youth National Conference brings together over 100 exceptional young people from across Australia and the Asia-Pacific to discuss a diverse range of international and local issues.

Throughout the week long conference, students will learn from experts in international relations, participate in interactive workshops, and formally debate questions of global importance. The Conference aims to create a generation of young Australians who are informed and passionate about the world around them through education, engagement with national leaders, and peer mentorship.

The Conference includes students from every state and territory, as well from New Zealand and across the Asia-Pacific.

National Conference is held each year in July in a different Australian capital city, run entirely by UN Youth volunteers from that city. In 2018, the Conference will be held in Adelaide.
