NT Delegation to UN Youth Australia's National Conference 2016

Seven Darwin High School students have been selected as delegates representing the Northern Territory in UN Youth Australia's upcoming National Conference 2016.

The UN Youth National Conference brings together over 100 exceptional young people from each state and territory of Australia and the Asia-Pacific to discuss a diverse range of international and local issues. Delegates for the conference were selected by UN Youth NT through application submissions and participation to our Territory Conference held in April earlier this year.

This year, seven out of a total of ten NT delegates are students of Darwin High School:

  • Bayden Curnow
  • Lotus Kelly
  • Surian Tovar-Sheridan
  • Yunus Surtie
  • Jasica Jong
  • Nisangi Wijesinghe
  • Thomas Sawyer

The upcoming week long Conference will be held in Brisbane from 3 July to 9 July. Students will learn from experts in international relations, participate in interactive workshops and formally debate questions of global importance. Delegates will explore the theme ‘People, Planet, Prosperity’ and also learn about the Sustainable Development Goals and the global development agenda. This is also in addition to coming up with solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing humanity, and having the opportunity to talk about the issues that matter to them.
