The Youth National Security Strategy

Our mission is to empower young Australians to be properly engaged as stakeholders in national security debates and policy.

In December 2021, forty-two young thinkers will assemble at a weeklong Symposium at the Australian National University. Their mission is to co-author the nation’s first youth-led national security strategy. Following the Symposium, the strategy document will come to life. Our experienced team of editors will draft the Representatives’ ideas and policy proposals into a cohesive text. The ensuing document — the Youth National Security Strategy — will be published across influential forums. After a launch event, which will bring together the initiative’s Representatives, hosts, and supporters, the Strategy will be presented to news outlets, think tanks, academics, and government. Elevating the voice and profile of the youth Representatives will drive the Strategy’s dissemination.
