The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in partnership with Asia Education Foundation is pleased to host the Australia-ASEAN Youth Forum as part of Australia now ASEAN 2019.
The Asia Education Foundation is now inviting Year 9-11 students in teams of six, wishing to participate in the Australia-ASEAN Youth Forum to submit a two minute video responding to ‘digital connectivity’ from the perspective of one of the ASEAN member states or Australia.
Bringing students together from across Australia, this engaging learning experience will explore opportunities and challenges presented by digital trade, digital infrastructure, and digital innovation for ASEAN member countries and Australia. Students will develop their general capabilities, including their intercultural understanding, personal and social capability, and creative and critical thinking skills.
Only 11 Australian school teams can attend this program, one for each member of ASEAN, including Australia. If selected, your school team along with one staff member will be brought to Sydney for the final program on November 20th, with flights and accommodation covered as part of your ASEAN experience. Your team will take part in an interactive youth forum at the beautiful Sydney Opera House, with delegates from around Australia, linked via video with peers in Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore.
The Forum will provide young people with intercultural learning experience, providing skills to navigate global diversity and negotiate their agency in communities within Australia and the ASEAN region.
