A student-led conference tackling the UN Sustainable Development Goals through STEAM and Innovation

A student-led conference tackling the UN Sustainable Development Goals through STEAM and Innovation

This week our student leadership team was proud to present, Youth Response, a youth conference tackling the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Welcoming students from Pimlico State High School, Townsville State High School, Byron Bay High School, Indooroopilly State High School, delegates participated in a series of STEAM and design thinking activities that encouraged them to consider real-world solutions to issues in their local community and beyond. We also welcomed Dr Sarah Richardson, Executive Director of Asia Education Foundation, who spoke about the role of youth voice in the Asia Pacific region and how through engagement and collaboration, students can become true global citizens.

We congratulate our student leaders for their exceptional work organising such an engaging and meaningful conference, in particular Natasha Castello (Year 10 Academic Leader) and Dominique Venables (Year 8 Academic Leader) for leading the two days of activities. Thank you to all of our delegates for their participation in the conference.
