Youth Leadership Symposium – Mana Rangatahi Hui Taumata

The Youth Wellbeing Conference for Young Leaders

Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre



Whāraurau, in partnership with Te Whatu Ora, is hosting the Youth Leadership Symposium 2022 – Mana Rangatahi Hui Taumata; a full-day hui that brings together over 100 passionate young leaders, between 16 and 30 years old from across the Pacific region to build a declaration on the topic of youth wellbeing. 

Whilst creating a space for youth leaders to connect, learn and problem solve, the main purpose of the Youth Leadership Symposium will be to create a declaration that highlights the enablers and challenges of youth well-being and specific recommendations that NGOs, government agencies, and organisations can implement to further improve the state of youth wellbeing, both nationally and internationally.  
Topics of the hui will include: education, employment, equity, government, healthcare governance, social media and technology, hauora, identity and experience, society and community/whānau.  

The declaration developed during the conference will be presented to the mental health sector leaders at the International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership (IIMHL) Exchange 2022 Network Meeting, by the Whāraurau Youth Advisory Team, on Wednesday 26 October.
