Global Goals Youth Forum (QLD)Bookmark
This is an AEF hosted event
Asia Education Foundation in partnership with the Queensland Department of Education International is pleased to host the Global Goals Youth Forum.
The Global Goals Youth Forum seeks to acknowledge the role of young Australians in taking action to solve the global issues of our time.
Throughout the forum, students are challenged to work collaboratively in teams of 6 to draw on the Global Goals for Sustainable Development as a resource and develop an understanding of different perspectives through engagement with The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the ASEAN Human Rights Declaration documents, to develop public spaces, programs, products or services that create inclusivity for our culturally diverse communities.
To address ways to create inclusive communities students will develop their 'Big Idea' through structured design thinking. At the end of the day, each team is invited to pitch their 'Big Idea' to the audience. Their 'Big Ideas' are then collated and shared in a report of key outcomes.
Students will also have the opportunity to hear from and speak with industry experts, who share their insights about the global issues that impact on the local community and how their work contributes towards achieving the Global Goals, as well as highlight opportunities for young people to get involved.
Prior to the forum, teachers are provided with a comprehensive information pack, including pre-forum student learning activities as well as suggestions of post-forum activities.
