Are you in Years 9 – 12 and passionate about international relations?
We want your voice to be heard.
Join hundreds of students in early 2020 for a weekend of leadership, diplomacy, and advocacy. Connect with issues that baffle the leaders of today and shape our national discourse. Form friendships with a diverse array of students from all around Queensland and Northern New South Wales, and become inspired to deliver change in your local communities, and eventually the world.
State Conference is one of the best events of the year and we would love to see you there.

Like most UN Youth events, the Queensland State Conference is focused on developing leadership skills, and on discussing the ways we can make a difference in our local communities and the world.
The theme for State Conference 2020 is TBD
State Conference spans across three to four days, giving you a chance to meet people from all across Queensland and Northern New South Wales.
The conference will start in Brisbane. In 2019, the remainder of the conference was held at the Sunshine Coast Recreation Centre. The date, time, and location of State Conference 2020 will be announced in mid to late 2019.
The conference will center around understanding and discussing important global issues through workshops, listening to and questioning guest speakers, and tackling a simulated crisis in an Interactive Problem Solving activity. There will also be plenty of opportunities to network, relax and socialize.
The UN Youth Queensland State Conference also hosts the largest secondary-school Model UN debate in Queensland. Students will spend some time acting as a diplomat – doing their best to pass resolutions that will benefit the global community and align with their national interests.
