Aotearoa Youth Declaration is a forum bringing together young New Zealanders from around the country to learn, discuss and formulate solutions to issues in New Zealand, ultimately producing a declaration of Youth recommendations. Over four days the participants work in targeted focus groups to create policy and value statements on a broad range of issues. The result of this is the empowerment and education of young people, as well as the Youth Declaration, a document which reflects the youth voice.
This year's conference will be 21-24 April (in the school holidays) at the University of Auckland business school. Applications for 2017 close Wednesday 1 March at 11.59pm.
