Angelica Ojinnaka

Your Australian Youth Representative to the United Nations for 2022

Hello! I’m Angelica Ojinnaka, and I am excited to hearing from, learning beside and leading with young people across Australia to discover the issues that are most important to them.

Together, let’s create a youth responsive society.

As your Youth Representative to the UN, I get the honour of hearing from, learning beside, and leading with young people. This year, I want to understand and explore how do we, young people (in all our diversities), envision a youth-responsive Australia. Young people have a plethora of expertise to offer. Most of my life has been learning to find my feet, and find a way to be me and have people like me heard.

Hello! I’m Angelica Ojinnaka, your representative to take the issues you care most about to domestic and international forums.

ECOSOC Youth Forum 2022

COVID-19 Recovery: Youth taking action for a sustainable future
19th to 20th of April, 2022

The Forum will provide a platform for young people, including Australian youth, to engage in a dialogue with Member States and other actors on concrete actions to rebuild from COVID-19 and to advance towards the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Decade of Action.

Angelica will share best practices, lessons learned, solutions as well as creative and innovative ideas with Member States, other youth and stakeholders on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and also on the sustainable development goals under review in the Economic and Social Council and the High-level Political Forum in 2022.

If you would like to contribute to the Forum, you can email a contribution directly to Angelica at youthrep@unyouth.org.au.

We’re situating youth experiences and perspectives in the centre.
