Evatt Competition 2017 Director

Every year UN Youth New Zealand selects four secondary school students to attend the Evatt Competition in Australia, which is run by our good friends at UN Youth Australia. Evatt is a simulation of the UN Security Council (UNSC), one of the principal organs of the United Nations and the body charged with the maintenance of international peace and security.

Each Australian State holds preliminary competitions at various times in the year and the National Finals is held in December. Students compete in pairs and every year UN Youth Australia reserves two places (four students) out of the 30 teams in the National Finals for UN Youth New Zealand. In 2017, the National Finals will be in Canberra.

About the role

Evatt is different to the other international delegations UN Youth organises as it is much smaller in scope. It does not involve a study tour before or after the conference itself. The main tasks of the Director include selecting the delegates, providing them with appropriate training and briefing, organising some logistics such as flights to and from Australia, and liaising with the Evatt Convenors from UN Youth Australia. During the conference itself, the registration fee that is paid covers accommodation and food. During Evatt, the Director will fulfil the role of Head of Delegation. This is mainly a facilitation role, but also involves primary responsibility for passing on information from the Evatt Competition Organising Committee to the rest of the delegation.

Otago Youth Forum Organising Committee

UN Youth Otago are looking for passionate university students to organise Youth Forum 2017. This is a civics education event that empowers young people and equips them with the skills to speak about issues important to them and be active citizens. In this election year, Youth Forum is a chance for high-schoolers in Otago and Southland to have their voices heard.

Organising a conference is a chance to put your studies, ideas and passions to practice in a team environment, and develop new skills. It is a great opportunity to give back to the local community, and meet passionate, like-minded individuals.
