Event Description

AUSPARL by UN Youth Wellington, offers high school students an exciting opportunity to dive into the intricacies of Australia’s parliamentary system. This unique event aims to highlight key aspects of Australia’s House of Representatives and Senate, allowing participants to explore comparative politics between Australia and New Zealand.

Throughout the event, attendees will engage in workshops and parliamentary debates, gaining valuable insights into how Australia’s federal system operates. By stepping into the shoes of parliament members, students will deepen their understanding of the democratic process.

Did you know that over 600,000 New Zealanders, roughly 12% of our population, call Australia home? With trans-Tasman trade valued at around NZ$24 Billion annually, it's clear that Australia holds significant importance as our key international partner. By deepening your understanding of Australia and its political landscape, you're actively contributing to our mission of nurturing tomorrow's leaders.

Join us for an unforgettable day of learning and engagement. It’s bound to be a UN+Matched experience!

What is UN Youth?

UN Youth is a non-profit organisation focused on providing civics education beyond traditional classrooms. We involve youth in critical national and international affairs through immersive workshops and conferences. We aim to inspire young New Zealanders to be active, global citizens. Global citizenship takes diverse forms, and UN Youth offers opportunities for delegates to develop their own active citizenship style.

Our work equips young people throughout Aotearoa to become informed, engaged, and critical New Zealanders, understanding their global context and the links between local and global scales. Annually, over 3000 young New Zealanders attend UN Youth events, run by more than 150 volunteers across the country - dedicating many hours to engaging youth and growing the organisation.
