If any of you are in Melbourne on the 17th, this might be worth checking out.
Please join us for Youth to Community, the Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development (AYAD) Forum 2012.
Part of National Youth Week, The AYAD Forum is an annual event which provides a platform for discussion around a topical development issue. The Forum is held to recognise the continued need to foster linkages between Australia and the countries of Asia, the Pacific and Africa to make a positive contribution to development. The 2012 theme Youth to Community will highlight the importance of skilled young Australian volunteers working with communities to contribute to sustainable development and poverty alleviation.
