The Multicultural Council of Wellington and Multicultural NZ's Forum will address how an increasingly diverse range of young leaders can be empowered to add real value to Wellington’s future.

Participants will be inspired by dynamic young presenters, have an opportunity to connect with others, and be encouraged to share their ideas in group workshops. As a result, we will present a strategy document to the Wellington City Council. It will enable the Council to clearly see what needs to exist for young people to successfully help lead our city towards a dynamic, healthy future.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided for free.
