The Asia Education Foundation is now inviting Year 9-11 students, in teams of six, who wish to participate in the Australia-ASEAN Youth Forum to submit a two-minute video responding to ‘digital connectivity’ from the perspective of one of the ASEAN member states or Australia.

If selected, your school team along with one staff member will be brought to Sydney for the program, with flights and accommodation covered as part of your ASEAN experience.
