So what’s on at Un-Fair ground 2018?
Each day you will be taken on a journey. We want you to be inspired, think deeply and find your own way to create action.
Each day will have three stages:
- Be inspired – we will take proven solutions to complex problems from around the world and apply them to WA inspiring and motivating us for the day.
- Think deeply – we will have deep and meaningful discussions, share ideas and local knowledge, think divergently, and walk away with a better collective understanding of the ‘why’ to each of these important issues.
- Create action – we will work together to turn insights into action and walk away with a clear direction and purpose.
Over the two days we will be tackling six of our community’s greatest challenges, hearing examples of solutions from around Australia and internationally, thinking deeply into how these issues impact on young people and most importantly working collectively to create action.

the justice system, critically analyzing how each of these systems work and need to be
improved to prevent young people from falling into crisis.
