NSW Youth Roundtable

Saturday 9 August saw the first statewide Youth Roundtable occur in the Plast House, Lidcombe, NSW. The roundtable was run under the auspices of the Ukrainian Council of NSW however was fully organised by the youth of Sydney - Druzhynnyky and Starshi Plastuny. It was a conference organised by youth for youth.

Among the participants were several starshi yunaky and yunachky as well as druzhynnyky of CYM, and also other young people representing different organisations in NSW in which youth are members of.

During the program, participants discussed issues relevant to Ukrainian youth in today's day, for example, what does it mean to be Ukrainian in Australia, and also what does Ukraine mean to them. During the course of the day issues raised were put into some order of importance, eg tradition, culture, language, and then action plans were formed on how the situation or problem can be resolved.

Upon completion of the program youth felt satisfied that they had achieved something and are now ready to put their action plans into place. A second roundtable will be planned for the upcoming year so keep your eyes peeled!
