Our vision is for young Australians to be heard and engaged on the world stage. Our key activities include:
Selecting, funding and preparing Australian youth delegations to key diplomatic forums abroad such as the G20 and Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation; Acting as host organisation when those forums are held in Australia; Continuing the dialogue at home through regular events on international diplomacy for young people; Providing opportunities to be published on international diplomacy in traditional and online media outlets; Facilitating research and development opportunities for university students, linking them with top foreign policy experts, thinkers and organisations across the country.
