This year’s Kerferd Oration will explore the role young Australians have in providing leadership within our communities and how we might better hear their voice in all of our economic, social and political decision making processes.
The Kerferd Oration Committee, auspiced by Quercus Beechworth,has sponsored a project this year to inform this Oration about young people and leadership.
We recognise that young people will be critical in helping to manage the far-reaching social, economic and political impacts resulting from current and recent events and that they must be engaged at every level of government and the community, if we are to successfully recover from the local and global events of this year.
