The Nelson Mandela Youth Leadership Summit 2022
Young People Creating the Positive Leadership the World Needs
The Nelson Mandela Youth Leadership Summit 2022 on 18 July (Nelson Mandela Day) promises to be an exciting and engaging event. The Summit brings together a diverse youth population from Shepparton, Regional Australia, urban Australia and Asia-Pacific to create a group of connected future leaders of the region and Australia.
Born in Shepparton, the COVID lockdowns took the Summit online and allowed us to share the 2020 and 2021 summit experiences with young people and leaders spreading from New York to Africa. Young people chose the topics, and they were designed to assist them to grow into leading community players and act on the immediate most pressing challenges.
This year the historic Legislative Assembly Chamber of the Victorian Parliament in Melbourne will be the venue allowing the young leaders to experience speaking in a chamber still used by the Victorian Parliament and used by the Australian Parliament before the construction of Canberra's Houses of Parliament.
