Description


Canberra Grammar School in partnership with Asia Education Foundation are pleased to host the Australia-ASEAN Youth Forum, Canberra.

The Australia-ASEAN Youth Forum is a full-day interactive simulation designed to deepen students’ understanding of the Member States of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Australia’s place in the world.

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.

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

From the initial preparation to the actual simulation, students will use and develop general capabilities, including:

  • Literacy through listening, reading, writing and speaking;
  • ICT capability through research, communication and presenting information;
  • Critical and creative thinking to evaluate knowledge and solve problems; and
  • Personal and social capability through working in teams and building positive relationships with other students.

Students will also use and develop skills, knowledge and understanding across Civics and Citizenship, History, Geography, Business and Economics.
