Youth 20 Summit


Anthony Byrne MP, Federal Member for Holt, caught up with Adam Sullivan and Amanda Carron to encourage Casey’s Youth to apply to be an Australian delegate participating in the Youth 20 (Y20) Summit, to be held over 12-15 July 2015 in Sydney.

The Y20 Summit is the premier youth forum associated with the G20 event, the Summit is organised by the Y20 Planning Group with the support from the Department of Education. The Summit, which will be held in Sydney in July 2014, is the main platform for young people to make their voices heard on pressing global economic challenges and involves policy discussions by youth from the G20 member states.

The Summit will provide an excellent opportunity for five young Australians, aged 18-30, to represent Australia at this international event. The Australian delegates will work with delegates from the G20 member and invited countries, supported by the Australian Y20 Planning Group, to develop policy on the broad themes of growth, youth enemplopyment, and sustainable economic development. Outcomes from the Summit will be presented at the November G20 leaders meeting.

“I am really proud of Casey’s Youth and I believe we should have a representative to be an Australian delegate at the Y20 Summit this year to not only convey the challenges that young people face living in the outer suburbs of Melbourne but also provide the new ideas for the 21st century. The Y20 plays an important role in providing new ideas that are presented to the G20 Leaders Summit for consideration in their discussions,” said Mr Byrne.

Further information on the selection criteria and the Y20 Summit can be found at www.y20australia.com. Alternatively the Y20 Information Line of 1300 857 536 or y20@y20australia.com can assist with questions regarding the selection process. Applications close on the 21st February 2014.
