The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in partnership with Asia Education Foundation is pleased to host the Australia-ASEAN Youth Forum as part of the Australian Government’s initiative, Australia now ASEAN 2019.
To be eligible for selection to attend the Australia Now Youth Forum, schools must submit a short video proposal (maximum of 2 minutes) on the theme of ‘digital connectivity’ from the perspective of one of the ASEAN member states or Australia.
Only 11 Australian school teams can attend this program, one for each member of ASEAN, including Australia.
Submissions must meet the stated criteria, to be considered.
Submissions must have at least one student who is available to be in Sydney from 19-20 November, with other team members being finalised once selected schools are notified. Travel and accommodation costs are included in the reward.
11 schools will be selected to take part in the Australia-ASEAN Youth Forum in Sydney; one for each ASEAN nation and Australia. Each school team participating is made up of six students.
All submitted entries must include completed AVP permission forms, one for each student in the team as well and those featured in the video submission.
Schools may make more than the one submission; however, students can only be part of the one team.
Due to the anticipated high volume of registrations, unsuccessful teams will not be provided with individual feedback.
By submitting a video you agree to have the final product shared by the Asia Education Foundation and program partners of the Australia Now Youth Forum.
Teams must be made up of students from the same school; alterations to teams can be made upon written request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional speakers will be announced over the coming weeks
