The ASEAN-Australia Strategic Youth Partnership (AASYP) will be hosting its inaugural ASEAN-Australia Young Leaders Forum from 29 November – 2 December in Jakarta, Indonesia this year. We are excited to announce we are now accepting applications for fully-funded delegate positions!

The ASEAN-Australia Young Leaders Forum will bring together 40 outstanding young leaders between the ages of 18-29 years . The themes of this year’s conference - digital economy and trade, disaster resilience and counter-terrorism - will be explored through expert-led panels, professional-development workshops and site visits. More information about the Forum is available on our website

This opportunity is fully funded, so we encourage any young leaders interested in ASEAN-Australian affairs to apply. 

Currently, prospective delegates can submit application via this link or through our website. Applications close on 9 August, so please hurry up!
