Annika addresses global issues at Summit - 13 June 2014

Year 11 student, Annika Cameron, recently represented Lourdes Hill College in the UN Global Development Summit, organised by UN Youth Australia at QUT Gardens Point.

United Nations Youth Australia is an organisation run for youth, by youth, and aims to engage with as many young people as possible and build the people’s movement for the United Nations through the education and empowerment of young Australians.

With Brisbane set to host the G20 summit this November, the forum was held to create collaboration between peers in every Australian capital city to produce a written submission to the Australian Delegation to the Y20 Summit (the youth conference as part of the G20).

The summit looked at the challenges, opportunities and questions around economic development both across the world and here at home.

Of her experience at the Summit, Annika said:

“The Global Development Summit was a fantastic opportunity for me to explore the issues of global aid, development and economics.  The day comprised several workshops that were both entertaining and engaging and at the same time included a major educational element.

The submission of the statements of action and aspiration to the Y20 delegation, was a great opportunity for the younger members of Australian society to contribute their ideas and opinions towards the G20 youth summit to be held later this year.

I would strongly encourage other students to become involved with UN Youth Queensland through either their Evatt Debating Competition (years 10-12) or the Voice public speaking competition (years 8-10).”
