UN Youth Australia aims to allow young people to explore and engage with the most important issues facing our world.
Our Young Leaders Summits are one day conferences held all across Australia that deal with these issues with the depth and nuance they deserve.
Our Summits vary from issue to issue – in the past, dealing with the politics of development, gender, even space law!
Our first Summit of 2019 is tackling one of the biggest challenges of our time, climate change.
Summit 1: Our Climate, Our Future
Climate change is the biggest challenge of our time. But it can be hard to know where to start, or to understand the reality behind the news. Are you passionate about fighting climate change or want to learn more?
Join us for a one day conference exploring the realities of climate change, and the international effort to save our planet.
The day long event will equip you with the knowledge and motivation to drive the change you want to see in the world. Through interactive workshops, you’ll learn what the world is doing to fight climate change, and the negotiations that shape this international action. We’ll tackle the way that climate change hits people across the world in different ways. Whether you’re an expert or brand new to the topic, there’ll be plenty to learn.
We’re bringing young people together across the country. The Young Leaders Summit will be running in Adelaide, Brisbane, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney.
