Event description

Description

The Asia Education Foundation is proud to host the Australia-ASEAN Youth Forum with support from the Victorian Department of Education.

This student centered, full-day interactive simulation is designed to deepen students’ understanding of Southeast Asia and Australia’s relationship with the region as well as develop their global competencies through role-play.

The Australia-ASEAN Youth Forum brings together Year 9-11 students from across South Australia to discuss and find solutions to regional issues from the perspectives of Southeast Asian and Australian leaders.

Students, working in teams of six per country, represent Australia and one of the 10 Member States of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), namely Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Throughout the forum, students are challenged to present their allocated country’s stance on complex regional issues and use their negotiation skills to reach mutually agreeable solutions. For the purpose of this forum, students will focus on climate change.

Learning Outcomes
As a result of their participation students:

  • deepen their knowledge and understanding of the countries of Southeast Asia and Australia’s relationship with the region;
  • realise the benefits and challenges of regional dialogue, intergovernmental cooperation and conflict resolution;
  • deepen their understanding of regional issues; and
  • develop their general capabilities, including their intercultural understanding, personal and social capability, and creative and critical thinking skills.
