With the vast array of opportunities and challenges between Australia and ASEAN, there are thousands of passionate young people who are playing an important role in building the a more connected and vibrant future for our neighbourhood.
As our region becomes more connected, transnational questions pose both a higher risk but also a greater opportunity to come together to effectively solve these issues. Understanding how these complex problems affect the region, and strengthening patterns of cooperation and dialogue is essential for designing appropriate solutions. We believe that providing a platform for young people to engage with debates will bring new perspectives, innovative thinking and a range of experiences to the table.
