UN Youth Victoria’s annual State Conference brings together over 150 delegates from across the state for a weekend of leadership, diplomacy and advocacy. Join us from March 1st to 3rd to take part in the global conversation about your future in our democracy! This flagship event presents an opportunity for you to develop your skills in public speaking, negotiation and critical thinking alongside an incredible group of like-minded students.
The 2024 State Conference spans across two and a half days, giving you a whole weekend to make new friends from across the state! Delegates (students) will spend the first day of State Conference meeting each other and getting to the heart of the international law interactive workshops, a speaker panel, and by tackling a simulated Interactive Problem Solving activity. The final day of State Conference is your chance to emulate a member state of the United Nations in Model UN committee debates. Get into a diplomat’s shoes for a day and do your best to pass resolutions that will benefit the global community and align with your national interests – not always an easy task.
