Today, we’re really excited to announce a brand new initiative from AIYA: our inaugural Conference for Australian and Indonesian Youth. Following on from past opportunities like our networking events and internships, the conference will give 30 young leaders from Australia and Indonesia the opportunity to work together in building a stronger relationship between Australia and Indonesia.

Planned for October this year, the conference will be hosted by the Australian National University in Canberra. CAUSINDY’s mission is to improve the bilateral relationship by creating a platform for youth dialogue. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with each other, and experts in business, government, and academia.

In line with its theme, ‘Our turn to decide’, CAUSINDY will shape new ideas about the bilateral relationship of tomorrow. The conference will also act as a catalyst for change, by providing government and business groups with recommendations and input on policy in economic, social, cultural, and political issues.

With the support of the Australian National University, we’re pleased to announce that the conference has already attracted funding, and is also supported by the Australian government through the Australia-Indonesia Institute and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. For more information on sponsorship, contact the conference’s co-founders Chris Urbanski and Bede Moore.
