2017 Theme: Courage

We are living in a world in flux, and as young people we have the raw end of the deal.

Shifting political landscapes, uncertain futures and broken promises are creating ‘sides’, driving wedges between us and raising anxiety levels. We are having to summon the courage to 'find our brave' quicker, faster and often on our own.

Courage is about owning your fear, not being fearless. It's not just reserved for superheroes; but stories of saving lives, starting movements and changing the world can make courage feel out of reach.

Courage is about standing up to be heard and sitting down to listen. No courage is bigger or smaller than another. Explore stories of overcoming fear; the triumphs and challenges from the everyday to the once-in-a-lifetime.

Own the fear. Find your brave. Unleash courage.
