YVA’s next project is a Youth Animal Rights Conference (yARC) which will run in September this year. yARC aims to create an empowering and engaging youth space where young people can open their minds to a more nuanced and complex understanding of animal rights and its position alongside other social justice movements.
Working with the theme “"IMAGINE: Envisioning an Ideal World."” yARC will bring together speakers and content which encourages young people to build their own vision of a fair and equal future, and understand how they can work together to accomplish it. yARC aims to be a radically inclusive and actively engaging conference where young humans from all backgrounds and perspectives can hope and plan for a fairer society.
After already completing an extremely successful leadership and development program in March 2018 (www.yva.org.au/catalyst), this next project from YVA aims to capitalise on the momentum generated from Catalyst and build the groundworks for an event which will continue long into the future. With a great team behind us and an ever-growing network of support and participants, YVA is in a unique position to inspire and support the next generation of changemakers in the vegan community.
