FUSE 2021

Hosted by MYAN, FUSE is Australia’s bi-annual national multicultural youth leadership summit. 

FUSE is a unique and transformative opportunity for young Australians from refugee, migrant and asylum-seeking backgrounds to build and apply leadership and advocacy skills, expand their networks, and connect with peers from across Australia.

The main themes of FUSE 2021 are:

Mental Health

Climate Change

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Rights

Racism

Over 2 days in both face to face and online formats, delegates will:

Hear from experienced advocates working in diverse sectors

Explore key issues and solutions facing young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds

Participate in skills-building workshops

Engage with decision-makers and MPs from the state and federal level

Day 1 (Limited spaces available)

  • Online and face to face events (pending COVID restrictions)

Post FUSE, delegates are supported to apply their skills and knowledge at the state and local levels through MYAN’s partners. Many have gone on to be leaders in their state/territory and have joined MYAN’s Youth Ambassador Network (YAN).
