UN Youth is incredibly excited to announce that we will be taking a new delegation of tertiary students on the New Zealand Globalisation Tour. Globalisation Tour is an opportunity for 12 selected New Zealand tertiary students to meet business, political and academic leaders across East and Southeast Asia.

The Tour’s aim is for the delegation to gain first-hand insight into economics, politics and culture in the region and experience different Asian business cultures. This fits into the wider aim of UN Youth New Zealand, which is to provide opportunities for secondary and tertiary students to learn about, and become engaged with, contemporary issues impacting New Zealand and the wider international community.
