Explore how our economies influence our societies with UN Youth Australia!

Join us for a day of workshops and simulations exploring The Politics of Money. Over the course of the Summit, we’ll address the development of our contemporary economy, the interaction between domestic and global financial systems, as well as how our economies deal with crisis.

Topping it all off will be an interactive crisis simulation involving a state in economic flux, and it’s up to you to decide what to prioritise and how to respond.

Our economies and our political systems are inextricably tied together – and this conference is an opportunity to broaden your perspectives and explore what influences policy, and how crucial decisions are made. No prior knowledge or experience with politics or the economy is required – all you need is an open mind and a passion for learning about what motivates our world.

You’ll meet passionate young people from your area and make lasting friendships – so don’t miss out!
