2015: 'LIVING IN HARMONY- WITH EACH OTHER AND OUR PLANET'
Youth Congress is now an annual event which brings young people from all over New Zealand together for a weekend workshop of learning, networking and brainstorming around enacting positive change in society.
The 2015 Youth Congress is all about empowering NZ youth in their role as global citizens at local, national and global levels, and how global citizenship is integral to realising the Sustainable Development Goals.
Congress in 2015 took place from the 10th-12th July at Tapu Te Ranga Marae, in Wellington. Around 55 young people from around New Zealand came together to explore this concept of global citizenship.
Up coming events
Youth Congress will not be held in 2016, and a decision on the 2017 will be announced in late 2016.
