The Nelson Mandela Youth Leadership Summit 2021 promises to be an exciting and engaging event for young people. The Summit brings together a diverse youth population – refugees, migrants, indigenous youth, and other Australian born youth to create a group of connected future leaders of the region and Australia. Born in Shepparton, the advent of COVID brought the Summit online and allowed us to share the 2020 summit experiences with young people and leaders spreading from New York to Africa. So too 2021.
The 2021 Nelson Mandela Youth Leadership Summit themes build on Nelson Mandela’s legacy of optimism in the face of great hardship, empowerment, personal growth, social justice, regional development and global engagements.
The Summit is an opportunity to learn to lead with realistic and infectious optimism. The speakers will share knowledge, wisdom and facts to provide a sense of hopefulness, confidence and high expectations. In addition, there will be ample time for the students to talk with leaders and share insights and good questions.
