Youth Summit Applications Open
Thursday, 30th January 2014 at 8:55 am

Australians aged between 18 and 30 are encouraged to apply for the chance to represent their country at this year’s high profile Y20 youth summit in Sydney from July 12-15.

Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Education, Senator Scott Ryan, said the Y20 delegate selection process opened on Tuesday, January 28 and closes Friday, February 21.

“Five young Australians will be chosen to represent Australia at the July Y20 Summit, and successful delegates will be contacted in mid-March 2014,” Senator Ryan said.

“This is an excellent opportunity for young Australians to represent their country at an international event.

“The delegates will engage with others from G20 member states to discuss global economic challenges and develop ideas to be presented to the G20 leaders’ summit in Brisbane in November.

“Discussion will centre around three broad themes of growth, youth unemployment and sustainable economic development. The Y20 summit will have a particular focus on youth unemployment."

Delegates will be asked to engage with young people across Australia to ensure a wide range of views and ideas were captured to provide the basis for their negotiations.

“The Y20 Summit will draw young people from the world’s 20 largest economies and has an important role to play in discussing issues that matter to young people,” Senator Ryan said.

“Y20 will identify the most vital economic challenges facing young people today through discussing and exchanging ideas, skills and experiences."

Young Australians interested in applying to be an Australian delegate can access information on the selection process at www.y20australia.com  or call the Y20 information line: 1300 857 536.
