State Conference is a weekend-long residential conference, open to all students in Years 9 to 12. Run entirely by young people for young people, this weekend is an incredible opportunity for you to meet other passionate young people, to have your voice heard in discussions on the issues most important to you, and to learn about leadership, diplomacy, and advocacy. You’ll become friends with people from all around WA, and become inspired to make change in your local community and the world.
States of Conflict
State Conference 2019 is themed ‘States of Conflict’. Want to learn more about terrorists, freedom fighters and non-state actors? What about non-traditional drivers of conflict like data and water security? We love exploring these ideas at UN Youth, and have heaps of different activities and workshops planned so you can learn more and explore your ideas.
During the conference, you will take part in workshops on the UN, pressing issues such as traditional and non-traditional security threats, non-state actors, humanitarian intervention and conflicts fought on keyboards around the world. You will represent a country in Model UN debates, listen to and question expert guest speakers, participate in interactive problem solving simulations, and have your voice heard in discussions on security issues most important to you.
