UNICEF NSW Youth Drought Summit
October 9, 2019 @ 8:00 am - October 11, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Are you a young person impacted by the NSW drought?
UNICEF Australia invites you to apply for the first NSW Youth Summit on Living with Drought, 9-11 October 2019
UNICEF Australia, with the support of the NSW Government, is hosting the first Youth Summit for young people living with drought in NSW.
At the Summit, children and young people will come together with decision-makers and one another to discuss the challenges they face living with drought in NSW and how responses can be improved. The Summit will explore the ways decision-makers can best support children and young people to build resilience and become better prepared to reduce the negative impacts of ongoing and future drought. The Summit also presents an opportunity for young people living with drought to have a break from the land, work with their peers who are going through similar struggles, and have an opportunity to connect, engage and reflect, surrounded by beautiful Lake Macquarie.
If you’re aged 14-24 years and are impacted by drought, participating in the NSW Youth Drought Summit is a unique and exciting opportunity to speak up for drought-affected children and young people.
All costs associated with attending the Summit will be covered by UNICEF Australia, including travel costs.
Applications close on Friday, 30 August at 11:59pm AEST.
