Annika selected for UN Youth Conference - 20 May 2015

Year 12 student, Annika Cameron, has been selected to attend United Nations Youth Australia’s National Conference. The Queensland delegation, comprised of just ten students, will travel to Hobart this July along with around 100 other students from across Australia, New Zealand, Japan and The United States. Together they will address a range of local and international issues around the theme of Shaping our Tomorrow: The Millennium Development Goals and Beyond.

UN Youth Australia is a national youth-led organisation that aims to open young eyes to the world, through educating and empowering young Australians on global issues that are currently facing the world. Throughout the weeklong conference, students will have the opportunity to learn from experts in international relations, participate in interactive workshops and formally debate questions of global importance.This year, delegates will learn about the Millennium Development Goals and the global development agenda, come up with solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing humanity, and have the opportunity to talk about the issues that matter to them.

The delegation has been selected to represent the state from the hundreds of students that attended either the UN Youth Queensland State Conference or Regional Conference earlier this year. It includes five students from Brisbane, two from the Gold Coast and Mackay and one from Townsville.

Annika has been extensively and enthusiastically involved in UN Youth Australia’s Queensland division since Year 10, having attended its State Conferences and as a member of its Schools’ Ambassadors Program in 2013, 2014 and 2015. She also attended their Global Development Summit last year, held in line with the Brisbane G20 Summit.
