Inclusion and accessibility

The Youth Futures Summit values diversity and is committed to ensuring that the YFS2022 is an inclusive event.

We need to develop solutions that work for everyone; therefore, we need people attending the Summit that represent the people we want to empower.

To support this, we are taking a number of actions to ensure the YFS2022 is an inclusive event, accessible for all and reflective of the diversity of culture, background, experience, and belief that make up all of Australia.  

If there is anything we can do better to make this event inclusive and accessible, please let us know via info@nycinquiry.org.au

Acknowledgement of country

The Youth Futures Summit acknowledges that the work undertaken to organise this event is on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded and wish to pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

YFS2020 will be granting a number of scholarships for people to attend the Summit to ensure that the price of tickets is minimised as a barrier for attending.
