Townsville Conference

The Townsville Regional Conference aims to give students in North Queensland a unique educational experience – allowing them to participate in workshops and activities focused on issues of international and national importance.

Students in Years 9-12 from across the Townsville area will unravel international issues, analysing them from both a global and local perspective. People who are interested in social justice, foreign affairs and/or developing their leadership skills will benefit greatly from this conference.

This year, students will spend their time at the conference exploring environmental issues. Participants will spend time discussing and hearing from each other, developing innovative solutions to global problems, and discussing the uses and implications of renewable energy technologies. The conference will be held on the 8th and the 9th March.

Registrations are now open for 2019. Please keep an eye on this website and the UN Youth Queensland Facebook page for more information.
