Youth Day

*Invitation to Youth Councils, Youth Forums, Boards & Committees*

I would like to warmly invite each and every young person with initiative or involvement in youth work nationwide to attend a conference we hope will be beneficial for us all. Part of this conference is a full day specifically for us, a National Youth Council Day. We will be introducing the new National Youth Council Network, who you will all get to meet. The Otautahi Youth Council is really looking foward to hosting this event, and will make sure you'll have a great time in our lovely city of Christchurch!

I hope to see you all in October

Gloria Grace Sharplin
Chairperson
Otautahi Youth Council

The first day of the conference is aimed specifically for youth councillors and other young people who are part of local boards, forums, committees or other advisory groups involved in some way with local government.

The day is a chance for young people around the country to get together, network, make new friends, swap ideas and discuss issues specific to young people involved in local government in Aotearoa.

The Youth Day will also provide a chance for those Local Government staff around the country who are directly involved in youth participation to get together and network. The day will provide the opportunity to learn from each other, present ideas and will ensure plenty of time to discuss issues.

Time and Venue – Christchurch City Council Chambers, 11am until 4.30pm.
