Australia-ASEAN Youth Forum
The Australia-ASEAN Youth Forum is a full-day interactive simulation designed to deepen students’ understanding of what it means to be a global citizen by developing their knowledge of the Member States of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Australia’s relationship with the region.

Enabling students to apply their knowledge and skills to solve problems in real world situations is an essential step in building their capabilities to be active and informed global citizens.

In this active learner-centred program, students are asked to simulate a meeting between the leaders of Australia and the Member States of ASEAN (Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, Brunei Darussalam, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia).

Throughout the day they will represent one country and have the opportunity to present that country’s position on the issues they, as nations, are facing. Importantly, they will discuss and propose agreements with the aim to reach mutually agreeable solutions through negotiation and consensus building.

For the purpose of the forum students will focus on three key regional issues, namely refugees, trade and climate change.  
 

As a result of their participation students will appreciate and understand what it means to be a global citizen by:
· deepening their knowledge and understanding of the countries of Southeast Asia, the role of regional organisations and Australia’s place in the region;
· realising the benefits and challenges of regional dialogue, intergovernmental cooperation and conflict resolution; and
· deepening their understanding of regional issues.

Date: 24/05/2017
