Changing Your World – Youth Challenge

May 11 • 9:00 am - May 13 • 3:00 pm

This exciting event could be best described as: Disrupted meets Festival of Dangerous Ideas meets TEDX – conversations with a huge helping of creativity, collaboration and impactful energy.

The Changing Your World Conference provides an opportunity for young people to to network, learn about emerging innovations and technology, and co-design solutions to shared sustainability and impact management challenges for local government and the broader community.

Youth the world over are concerned about climate change, sustainability and their future. It’s time we heard them.

At the City of Canning we are keen to hear from our young people about the most important social and environmental issues occupying their minds. So, we’re working with Millennium Kids to give youth an opportunity to communicate their unique perspectives and co-create innovative solutions and help them to make the positive impact they want to make in their community.

Join us for three days of online and active leadership labs. Check out the full program here. Changing Your World Youth Conference and Challenge
