About State Conference

Registrations for 2020 State Conference have now closed!

State Conference sees more than two hundred students from across the state meet at The Collaroy Centre in Sydney’s Northern Beaches to learn about leadership, diplomacy and advocacy and to take part in the global conversation about a unique and pressing international issue.  You will connect with issues that baffle the leaders of today and shape our national discourse. Perhaps most importantly, you will form friendships with a diverse array of students from all around NSW and become inspired to deliver change in your local communities, and eventually the world.
State Conference spans across three days, giving you a chance to meet friends from all across NSW. Delegates (students) will spend the first day of the conference meeting each other and getting ready to have some complex discussions. The second day centres around understanding and discussing the topic through workshops, listening to and questioning guest speakers, and tackling a simulated crisis in an Interactive Problem Solving activity. Wind down afterwards at the trivia night, and get your boogie on at our disco! The final day of State Conference is your chance to emulate a member state of the United Nations in Model UN debates held at the University of Technology, Sydney. Get into a diplomat’s shoes for a day and do your best to pass resolutions that will benefit the global community and align with your national interests – not always an easy task.
