Win a ticket to peacebuilding conference

Check out how you can go in the draw to win one of two passes to the Rotary International Presidential Peacebuilding Conference in Sydney on March 17.



The world could do with more peace, and that’s exactly what the Rotary International Presidential Peacebuilding Conference (one of six being held around the world) sets out to achieve.

The summit, to be held at Sydney Town Hall on March 17, brings together academics, politicians, activists, business and community leaders to consider how to resolve conflict from both a local and international perspective. Come along and find out how peace can be given a chance, through tackling the underlying issues behind conflicts and encouraging economic and community development to target poverty, disease, food security and lack of education.

By coincidence, the conference takes place on St Patrick’s Day, and Ireland is a good case study of a country that has managed to largely resolve its “Troubles” to achieve peace in our time. So don your green clothing, and throw your hat in the ring to win one of two tickets to this event - all you have to do is answer this simple question in 50 words or less...

“How does YHA contribute to peace and understanding?”

Please email your answers to to go in the running. Competition closes 5pm on Wednesday 28 February 2018. The winner will be selected based on the best response in the judges’ opinion (which is final, and no correspondence will be entered into, nor any cash alternative prize offered). YHA reserves the right to publish the responses. 

Good luck!
