National Listening Tour

The Youth Representative is the only role of its kind in Australia. The Australian Youth Representative to the UN is a role appointed annually by UN Youth Australia in consultation with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

The Youth Representative holds an extensive, nationwide consultation to engage with and discover the issues that are most important to young Australians.

Known as the Listening Tour, this consultation process will see the Youth Representative meeting not only with young people but also with prominent members of the Australian community, including MPs, NGO leaders and those involved in the youth and education sectors.

In September, the Youth Representative travels to New York to represent Australian youth at the United Nations, as a member of the Official Australian Delegation to the UN. Kareem will deliver a speech on his findings during the Listening Tour, and upon his return to Australia, will deliver a report to the federal government on the year’s consultations.
