Wales on 9 September at a youth leaders’ day to be held at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.
Multicultural NSW’s annual youth forum, called IDEATION 2015, takes the theme I Choose to Be.
Participants will have the chance to share their ideas by signing on to #IDEATION_2015 on Facebook,
Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
“Young Australians in NSW grow up in one of the most multicultural societies in the world. We want
to hear young people’s ideas about how to maximise this diversity and to make a better society for
everyone in New South Wales,” said Multicultural NSW Chief Executive Officer Hakan Harman.
“As part of our strategic plan, Harmony In Action, we are ensuring all sections of the community
have the opportunity to contribute – especially young people who can take back to their schools
new ways of reflecting on our challenges and the future.”
Young people from public and private schools across the state have been invited to the forum, which
targets those aged 14-16. As young multicultural ambassadors they will pass on ideas during their
vital senior school years, with the aim of developing team-building and leadership skills that they can
share with their peers.
Themes within the conference will deal with tolerance, labels, culture, what it means to be a citizen
and contemporary issues facing youth.
Regional schools will be able to take part through video-conferencing facilities that are available on
