Event description

Description


There are 10 half-subsidised places available for government school students to take part in this program.

Asia Education Foundation in partnership with the Department of Education WA, Murdoch University and the One World Centre are pleased to host the Global Goals Youth Forum, Perth.

The Global Goals Youth Forum is a full-day program for Years 9-11 students, designed to deepen their understanding of global issues and develop their global competencies.

The Global Goals Youth Forum brings together around 70 students from different schools to discuss the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development and propose innovative solutions to achieve positive global change using design thinking.

The Global Goals for Sustainable Development were adopted on September 25th 2015 by world leaders gathered at a special United Nations summit. Over the next 15 years, these Goals aim to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change.

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 on one of the Global Goals based on their interests and passions and design their 'Big Idea' to help achieve that goal by 2030 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 also have the opportunity to hear from and speak with expert speakers, 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.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of their participation students will:

  • develop deeper awareness and understanding of the UN Global Goals;
  • build global competencies such as knowledge of global issues, intercultural understanding and critical and creative thinking;
  • appreciate and understand what it means to be an active local and global citizen;
  • understand the connections between what they learn in class and future education and career pathways.
