State Conference 2020

State Conference is our premier educational event.

State Conference is a long weekend of educational workshops, informative and inspiring guest speakers and stimulating model UN debate.

Perhaps even better though is the chance to spend time with over 50 other young people from right around Tasmania. Open to all students in grades 9-12, this is a fantastic way to meet people who are interested in global issues just like you!

The theme of this year’s State Conference is The Politics of Development: Measuring Development in the 21st Century, and promises to be a fantastic weekend with excellent educational content!

Registrations are open for 2020! Get in contact with the convenor, Stewart Jackson, in the meantime with any enquiries or questions.

What Our Delegates Have To Say About State Conference

Our delegates love our events, and we want to share what they have to say with everyone!

“State Conference afforded me an opportunity that I couldn’t get anywhere else – it was one of the most unique learning experiences I’ve ever had and it has given me the chance to meet and bond with some of the most incredible people, who I can now proudly call my friends” – Emma, 2019

“State Conference was one of the most incredible opportunities to participate in. Being a delegate at State Conference taught me so much about debating, international relations and real world negotiating that it helped and encouraged me to study the university degree that I’m studying in 2019” – Sophie, 2017

“Going to State Conference was one of the best choices I have ever made. I went with butterflies in my stomach and left as another person with greater knowledge and a remarkable experience” – Clara, 2019

“I was never all that confident or loud. I was that quiet kid who you’d never hear talk but all of that changed for me because of State Conference. It gave me a voice to speak about things I’m passionate about and meet with some of the most friendly, talented and encouraging people I have ever met. State Conference made me the bright, happy and confident person I am today, and I am forever grateful” – Annabelle, 2019
