About The Youth Forum

The Youth Forum will be held over three days from Friday 2 to Sunday 4 October 2020 on Cockatoo Island, situated in the famous Sydney Harbour, parts of which are inscribed as part of the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage Property.

This event will welcome emerging heritage professionals from across the world to share skills and experiences, debate contemporary heritage issues, discuss innovative practices and pose outcomes for the future of heritage.

Designed as a combination of interactive, energetic and explorative workshops, plenary sessions, group and site-wide exercises, the Youth Forum won’t be the usual formal lecture style experience delegates may be used to.

This event is proudly supported by the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, the Major Partner of the GA2020 Youth Forum.
