United Nations Youth Conference 2018

From the 16th to the 18th of March, two Year 11 Students (Coby Howell and Connor Fyfe) participated in a weekend-long United Nations Youth Conference at the Nunyara Conference Centre. The theme of this conference was the exploration of “Power, Diplomacy and Influence”. This theme was investigated and studied throughout the weekend through a diverse range of activities. Across the weekend, Coby and Connor participated in multiple workshops, speaker panels, debates, problem-solving activities and so much more. Participants heard from Australia’s youth representative to the United Nations, business entrepreneurs and education officials. They also learnt a great deal about the systems of voting and were given the opportunity to participate in a study involving students voting in a mock election. The vast range of activities that were undertaken as part of the conference made the entire experience so much more informative and valuable, as well as incredibly enjoyable.

Pulteney’s commitment to supporting the interests of students enabled both Coby and Connor to utilise this wonderful opportunity and reap the benefits of such an informative conference. This was an enlightening experience for both students and they hope to participate in many more United Nations activities in the future.
