The Aotearoa Youth Leadership Institute is thrilled to announce that applications are now open for the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States. Taking place from 1 - 4 September 2014 in Apia, Samoa, this is a fantastic opportunity to gain an understanding of development issues in the Pacific.
SIDS 2014 will have a particular focus on sustainable development, including evaluating the impact of climate change on small nations, and understanding the way potential climate disasters could affect Pacific economies and societies. Delegates will have the unique opportunity to see these negotiations progress, and will benefit from witnessing and even engaging with the discourse surrounding some of New Zealand’s closest neighbours.
Around five lucky applicants will be chosen to attend, and applications close this Sunday 27 July. New Zealand youth over 18 are encouraged to apply.
