For twenty years, Australia’s Youth Representatives have been listening to what our young people have to say, and representing their voices at the United Nations and beyond.
This year’s Youth Representative, Amos Washington, has almost completed his Listening Tour and is about to head across the pond to New York City. But the year’s coming to a close – and it might be your turn to be next.
Each year, UN Youth Australia, in consultation with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, select the Australian Youth Representative to the United Nations.
You will be in the role for a year, travelling the country to listen to young people across the nation, guided by a unique theme of your own design.
This year’s Youth Rep asked “What would Australia look like if young people had a greater say?”
What next year’s tour looks like – that’s up to you. Every Youth Rep has their own vision for how best to consult Australia’s young people, and it’d be up to you to deliver this unique program across the year.
Applications close August 31st.
