About EHF New Frontiers:

New Frontiers is a gathering of passionate minds and visionary leaders, creating positive impact in their communities and around the world, run by the Edmund Hillary Fellowship. This twice-yearly event is a three-day full- immersion experience hosted at Trentham Racecourse, Upper Hutt, Wellington. New Frontiers is a mix of workshops, emergent conversations, inspiring speakers and fun activities, aligned with EHF’s mission of supporting New Zealand as an “Incubation Nation”, from which to develop, grow and launch integrated solutions to global challenges.

About New Frontiers Youth Programme:

If you’re aged 12-18, and have a vision for a better world, we’d love you to join us for our 1 day Youth Programme! We want to hear your perspective on the areas Fellows are working on, which include new education models, climate priorities, indigenous empowerment and many more, while also providing a platform for you to expand your world view, develop leadership and collaboration skills to become global-minded citizens. We are working with UN Youth who will provide facilitators to work with you, to ensure you get the most out of your New Frontiers experience.

Application Process:
