Aotearoa Youth Declaration (AYD) is UN Youth’s flagship civics education conference. The conference aims to equip participants with a better understanding of their identity, the issues impacting their communities and ways they can contribute to solving these issues. Specifically, participants are guided by facilitators in rōpū over four days. Each rōpū centres around a different policy area. Additionally, participants will get involved in a number of workshops, visit various organisations and hear from industry experts. Participants will then develop policy recommendations on the areas most important to them. All of the policy recommendations are brought together in the Youth Declaration, a document that represents the youth voice.
AYD is also about introducing rangatahi (youth) to new experiences, opportunities and people. The conference is for young people from every corner of society. The conference helps participants explore the issues they are passionate about and shows them how they can express their passion through advocacy, volunteering and general community involvement. AYD is about empowering young Kiwis to become conscientious citizens who are aware of the influence of their voice upon the direction of Aotearoa. By challenging participants to tackle our country’s biggest social, economic and cultural issues, the conference provides young Kiwis with the motivation to create positive change in the future.
