Aotearoa Youth Declaration 2019, a four-day conference run in April each year at the University of Auckland for high school-aged rangatahi (youth aged 13-18) from around Aotearoa who want to make a difference. It is a great opportunity for passionate rangatahi to meet other like-minded rangatahi and challenge themselves.
At the conference, rangatahi work in groups (Rōpū) with trained facilitators to develop solutions to problems around specific topics, such as climate action, gender equality, international relations, or heritage.
