This format has been chosen to ensure delegates have the greatest opportunity possible to maximise their learning, foster new networks and develop their conceptual ideas into tangible actions that strengthen the relationship between ASEAN and Australia.

The ultimate goal of AAYLF is to equip young leaders from across Australia and ASEAN with the skills, tools and expertise required to be passionate advocates and agents of change, who are empowered to shape the future of the region. It aims to attract influential young leaders from across all disciplines and professions including science, policy, business and the arts.
