A forum where inspiration and collaboration convert into action

YouthSpeak Forum is a platform for cross-sector and inter-generational discussion on taking action and implementing the
Sustainable Development Goals, connecting young people and leaders across society to create collaborative action.

The forum aims to create an environment where people from diverse backgrounds can cross-pollinate ideas, share insights and gain new perspectives to create actionable outcomes to push the world forward.

We make this happen by taking our delegates through the unique and interactive framework of Inspire, Engage, Act.

Inspire: To create change, it must also change mindsets. Every YouthSpeak Forum is arranged to inspire the delegates through experiential learning, power talks and keynote speakers. We want to open the minds of delegates to think differently and spark new innovations.

Engage: Creating a positive impact requires different strengths and capabilities. By bringing together people from diverse backgrounds across sectors and geographies, we form a rich learning environment where speakers from varying organizations bring challenging perspectives and help spark opinions from the delegates.

Act: Taking action is the most important part. As inspiration and engagement occurs throughout the day, we want to ensure that delegates are given the chance to group together and form the sense of ownership and commitment towards the ideas and projects they pitch. We connect resources and networks with the projects to enable a real impact to occur.

Our February 2016 YouthSpeak Forum was held at the University of Sydney Business School.
There were five topics and themes for the day:
1. Asia Capabilities
2. Digital Disruption
3. Sustainability
4. Fintech
5. Transition from Education to Employment

A key highlight of the day included "reverse-panels" where a range of industry leaders were instead encouraging discussion by directing the questions to the delegates, providing fresh insights on topics from a youth perspective.

From there, key questions were raised - culminating in a Project Competition where groups co-created project solutions and pitched them against each other, judged by our expert panellists.

Our next YouthSpeak Forum will focus on "Entrepreneurship For Good" to answer the key question:
Whether we're from the private sector or public sector, representing an organisation or here as individuals -
how we can all work towards a better world, together?

The forum will be held in Sydney on 30th November 2016.
