Applications open for our IMF and World Bank Annual Meetings delegation

We're excited to let you know that applications for our second ever delegation to the IMF and World Bank Annual Meetings are now open!

We'll be choosing a small group of young Kiwis to head to the conference, which will be taking place in Bali, Indonesia this year. 

Get your application in by midnight, Friday 31 August.



The Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank bring together around 10,000 people - the most senior leaders of the world's governments, along with the private sector, academics and civil society - to follow the work of these two mammoth finance and development bodies.  The Meetings themselves are accompanied by a multi-day Civil Society Policy Forum that allows civil society groups to openly share their views and perspectives.

As with last year, two high priorities for the Meetings will include discussion around the Sustainable Development Goals, and improving international financial stability. These will be accompanied by sessions and discussion around a wide variety of relevant topics; last year's session included seminars addressing , the future of work, climate change, immigration, inclusive growth, education, inequality, trade, globalisation, fighting corruption, and women's economic empowerment.

Of course, it's only appropriate that our delegates should explore Bali - so as well as the Annual Meetings, they'll visit cultural sights, meet with dignitaries, NGOs, and thinktank experts, and have some free time to explore this beautiful island.

Apply here now.
