NSW Summit #1 2023

Registrations for NSW Young Leaders Summit #1 are now OPEN – register through this link.

Registrations are now open for our first summit of the year, Young Leaders Summit #1: Food and Water Security! This exciting one-day summit is being held in person, with a series of workshops, open to years 9-12.

Food and water security is a big issue in our world. Water is essential for basic health and hygiene. It also drives society’s most essential industries: agriculture, energy and transportation. Food is a fundamental human right and yet an estimated 690 million people go hungry every day. 

At our Young Leaders Summit, we’ll take you through a series of fun and engaging workshops to expand your understanding of food and water security and try to problem-solve some real life situations. You’ll have the chance to form friendships with like-minded peers, and be inspired to deliver change in your community and globally! 

Make sure you don’t miss out – sign up for our Young Leaders Summit on Food and Water Security here!
