We are thrilled to announce the 2nd Auckland Region Tertiary Policy Conference for 2018, back by popular demand.

This year this event will be exploring Auckland-based policy, and in particular — The Auckland Plan 2050. UN Discovered offers you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with The Auckland Plan and further challenges you to draft your own recommendations to the policy initiatives proposed in this document. The Auckland Plan is critical to the future development of Auckland, both regionally and locally! Come and take part in this conference and step into the shoes of a local councillor discussing and debating the future of the Auckland region.

The UN+Youth Auckland Tertiary Policy Conference is a one-day event that will not only offer you experience in a ‘policy-making’ space but an exciting opportunity to network!

You, along with a large group of passionate Auckland students will:

  • participate in committee sessions to engage with and debate current Auckland issues and policies outlined in The Auckland Plan; and
  • work together to draft up your own recommendations to current policy proposals.

This opportunity will not only give you the freedom to create innovative policy recommendations, but you will also get the opportunity to participate in a representative dialogue session designed to challenge and inspire new ideas and creative thinking. We are also offering new workshops as well as an exciting line-up for our panel session and guest speakers!

This policy conference will be on Saturday 11th August at the University of Auckland, and we invite ALL tertiary-level students from across the Auckland region who have a passion for politics at the local/regional level of governance and a desire for meaningful and positive social change! If this sounds like something you would like to get involved in please register and participate in this action-packed day, for free (food included!).

Information about our committees for the conference is available in the Committees tab above, please read through them and select your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd preferences when registering. 

Registrations are now open so apply above as a Participant in the Register tab.
