About us

AASYP brings together the energy, ideas and engagement of youth in Australia-ASEAN relations.

Who is it for?

AASYP empowers young people aged 18-29 years from across ASEAN and Australia to engage with each other and the most pressing issues of the day. We build young people’s expertise and engagement with ASEAN-Australia affairs, and provide tangible opportunities for young people to engage in promoting peace and prosperity across the relationship.

Create connections
