ABOUT

ASEAN-AUSTRALIA YOUNG LEADERS FORUM

The ASEAN-Australia Young Leaders Forum (AAYLF) is a funded four-day intensive workshop which aims to cultivate the next generation of leadership in the ASEAN-Australia relationship.

Delegates will leave the Forum as advocates and agents for increased partnership and collaboration between ASEAN and Australia.

 

The AAYLF will connect 40 outstanding young leaders aged between 18 and 29 who have demonstrated a capacity and commitment to solving the pressing challenges facing our region.
