What Is The Youth Futures Summit?
The Youth Futures Summit is a virtual event that brings together thousands of diverse people across multiple sectors and communities to re-imagine the biggest challenges and systems impacting young people, and the rest of Australia.
- Draw together thousands of people from multiple sectors and communities that are reflective of the diversity of cultures, backgrounds, experiences, and beliefs that make up all of Australia
- Be co-presented, co-attended and shaped by young people
- Deep-dive into the challenges and identify what the solutions should be
- Explore a number of different areas from climate change, youth mental health, jobs for the future, diversity in Australia and more.
Where is the Summit?
YFS2021 is entirely virtual. You can join in from any location. Ticket holders will be sent email instructions on how to access the virtual conferencing software called Hopin. Please make sure you keep an eye on your emails in the week before the Summit begins.
This is an online event, shouldn’t it be free?
Unfortunately, even running an event online costs money. The reason we have to charge for this event is to cover the costs of organising and producing the Summit and to pay performers and speakers. We are incredibly lucky that many of the speakers and presenters in the YFS2021 program have donated their time, and this means we have been able to offer affordable low-cost tickets. Any profits made after covering the event costs will be reinvested into grass-roots organisations including the National Youth Commission Australia.
Will there be AUSLAN interpreters and closed captions?
Yes, wherever possible we will provide AUSLAN interpreters and closed captions to make this event accessible. If you have any other specific accesibility requirements please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org
The Youth Futures Summit is committed to ensuring that the YFS2020 is inclusive and represents diverse communities, ideas, and perspectives. To support this, we are taking a number of actions from offering scholarships, to ensuring the event is accessible.
