The Pacific Project combines a high-quality Model UN with a development and volunteering trip, to provide an unforgettable experience across 19 days.
Ready to discover new countries, cultures and communities? Prepared to expand your horizons? Want to learn about your place in the world?
This life-changing 19 days will change the way you see the world.
First, you will take part in UN Youth Australia's most prestigious event: National Conference. You will travel to Canberra - the political heart of Australia. Here, you will debate with delegates from across the Asia-Pacific region, take part in workshops and make lifelong friends. After this, you will be part of the first Pacific Project delegation to go to Samoa. Here, you will learn about development issues in the Pacific, visit schools, governments, and the UN Development Programme. You will also explore sustainable energy initiatives, women's empowerment and fair trade. Finally, you'll volunteer on a development project, making a small but positive change in the community.
