Youth Summit


The Nillumbik Youth Summit brings together young people from across the Shire to discuss topics and issues that are important to them. Participants then make a number of recommendations to Council, local MPs and local youth service providers on the changes and initiatives they'd like to see in the community. 

The Youth Summit is by designed by our Youth Council for young people who are passionate about leadership, advocacy and the community in response to Council’s Youth Strategy 2022-2026. The Strategy provides an integrated approach to ensuring Council continues to value and incorporate young people into Council by providing meaningful opportunities for young people, valuing their contributions and empowering them to help shape our community.
