AAYLF 2019


The ASEAN-Australia Young Leaders Forum (AAYLF) is a four-day intensive online leadership experience which aims to cultivate the next generation of leaders in ASEAN and Australia. The Forum will enhance understanding of ASEAN-Australia relations, deepen the leadership acumen of influential youth and build direct people connections between the next generation of leaders. This is also a response to the United Nations’ call for the emergence of global leaders from Southeast Asia. The Forum will foster peer to peer discussion, the exchanging of ideas, and sharing of cultures, to improve delegates’ capacity for sustainable impact across the region.

The AAYLF will connect 50 influential young leaders aged between 18 and 29 who have demonstrated a capacity and commitment to solving the pressing challenges facing our region. Delegates will be a mix of youth leaders, young professionals and entrepreneurs from across all 10 ASEAN nations and Australia coming together to provide their inputs for building up a sustainable future.
