Youth Leadership Forum jointly convened at Parliament House Sydney

This Youth Leadership Forum was jointly convened with Dr. Peter Wong MLC of the Unity party, we were joined by Mr. Rowan Woods, producer of the hit Australian movie "Little Fish" and Ms. Cladia Karvan, one of Australia's most successful actors. The event was held two weeks after the infamous Cronulla Riots and it aimed to teach young people media, interpersonal, communication and leadership skills. The program was held in late December 2005.

  1. It was a pity that the Aboriginal flag was not raised at the ceremony because the existing NSW and Australian flags do not properly represent
    a multicultural and multiracial society.
