Invitation for Youth Leaders

Dear Australian Volunteers International,

Humanitarian Affairs United Kingdom is inviting Outstanding Youth Leaders from your prestige Organization to participate in the 2nd University Scholars Leadership Symposium from August 1 to 7, 2011 in Pattaya, Thailand. 

The recent natural disaster in Japan has made us realise that in this uncertain world anything could happen. As such, the Symposium strives to encourage any undergraduate, postgraduate or young professional interested in disaster and humanitarian affairs to attend. Delegates will have the opportunity to explore humanitarian values, principles and affairs through a global perspective. 

 Sessions will range from engaging dialogue with predominate humanitarians, core workshops to facilitate knowledge building and experiential service learning activities. The symposium will not only facilitate the global sharing of knowledge but will also provide delegates with key leadership skills. Furthermore, the symposium provides an opportunity to network with like minded youth from across the world. 

It would be greatly appreciated if you could publish this information on your website or help us disseminate it to the greater youth population. Better yet, feel free to nominate Youth Leaders of merit to participate in this conference; those nominated will be exempted from the usual application process. 

However, please take note that each Organization is allowed to nominate no more than 10 delegates. More information about the 2nd University Scholars Leadership Symposium 2011 can be obtained from the Official website at www.universityscholars.org.uk. To apply, please use the Official Application form attached.

I would also like to inform you that the United Nations has disseminated the information on the 2nd University Scholars Leadership Symposium as one of the core activities for Youth In Action ( UN Youth Flash, Vol. 8, No.3 March 2011). Please follow the link below for more information.


Participation is open to interested individuals between the ages of 18-30 years.

We look forward to welcoming your Outstanding Youth Leaders and the rest of the 500 Youths from all over the world.

Thank you.
