The Cairns Regional Conference gives students in North Queensland a unique educational opportunity to gain insight into the world of the United Nations and international affairs.
At Cairns Conference, students will have the opportunity to explore some of the most pressing issues of international importance. This year’s theme is ‘Sustainable Solutions’. Participants will explore the impacts of climate change and potential mitigation strategies for damage to the Great Barrier Reef.
This two day, non-residential event will be held on Friday the 24th and Saturday the 25th of May at James Cook University (Smithfield Campus). Room allocations and schedules will be advised to registered attendees at a later date.
The first day of the event will explore the conference theme through a range of debates, workshops and problem solving activities. The second day of the conference will consist of a round of the Evatt Trophy Competition – a nation-wide Model United Nations Competition. The winning team will progress directly on to the State Grand Finals in Brisbane.
