Griffith University’s annual Integrity 20 conference returns in October 2019 to drive the conversation on some of the great social, moral and political challenges for humanity.

We are delighted to announce that school registrations are now open!

For the second time in 2019 we are offering a dedicated day for schools – this time for students in years 10 to 12.

We also invite year 12 students to join us for day one of the main event.

Both programs provide an extraordinary opportunity to hear, learn from, and engage with, leading thinkers from Australia and around the world, including as far afield as Saudi Arabia, the United States and the United Kingdom.

Please note, program details were correct at the time of publishing and may be subject to change.
The full program will be released in August.

There are not many opportunities for young people to witness truly considered and considerate debate, and it inspired them. Thank you again, looking forward to seeing you next year.

Thanks so much for inviting us to this year’s Integrity 20. The students at Brisbane Bayside SC were blown away by the experience. The event was exceptionally well organised and the majority of the topics aligned to the current curriculum.

We loved the range of topics, particularly in the short lectures at the start of the day. The chance to interact with a top-level thinker in the workshops was a great privilege.
