Vibewire Youth Inc. is proud to present their six-year running online conference for young people. This year, held in conjunction with the Australian Innovation Festival, the festival is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to log on and create or join conversations with a range of exciting guest panellists.
WHAT IS e-FESTIVAL OF IDEAS?
The festival has four general areas on politics, human rights, the economy and generation Y. Within those there are forums with discussions on issues such as:
* What's the upside of the current economic downturn?
* How much do online profiles affect (or create) jobs?
* What's missing from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights?
* How is Facebook and Twitter making a social change?
* How is 24-hour news cycles affecting politics?
* Is the quest to save the environment just really about politics and power?
