If you are aged between 15 and 24 we would love for you to come to our upcoming youth consultations in Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch!

The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development is taking place in Brazil in June. The New Zealand government has submitted two proposals to the upcoming Conference, both as a national government and as Chair of the Pacific Islands Forum, and continues to provide feedback to shape the outcome document. However, the government has not undertaken any form of consultation with the New Zealand public to identify what issues New Zealanders see as important or what outcomes we wish to see.

Our objectives are to inform young people about the UN Conference on Sustainable Development and its key themes and issues of relevance, and to enable and empower NZ youth to take action on issues that affect them and they are passionate about.

There are seven key issues which will be discussed at Rio+20: green jobs and social inclusion, energy (access, efficiency and renewable), sustainable cities, oceans, agriculture and food security, water and disaster preparedness and building resilience.

We have awesome speakers covering each of the topics and there will be a chance to ask them any question you may have!

At the end we will use your opinions and views to put together a document for the New Zealand delegation going to Rio+20 so they are aware of the issues that are important for youth.

There will be pizza and snacks provided!
