Join the Young Australians in International Affairs at the Future 21 National Conference in Australia's national capital, Canberra

About this event

In an increasingly complex international environment, the Future 21 national conference will bring together the next generation of Australian leaders with Australia's leading policy thinkers and practitioners to think critically about the foreign policy, defence and strategic challenges and opportunities facing Australia and to consider how we will navigate our future in the 21st century.

​Over two days (8 and 9 September) at the ANU's Centre for China in the World, young leaders from across Australia will come together to explore these themes at two keynote addresses and four expert panels; three regional breakout sessions hosted by a Canberra-based foreign ambassador; pitch their policy ideas on how Australia can uphold and promote its interests in an increasingly complex world; and choose from a range of professional and leadership development workshops.

During the evening, participants will attend the Gala Dinner, enjoying fine dining and networking opportunities with participants. A range of pre-conference and post-conference sight-seeing opportunities will also be available for those looking to explore Canberra's national landmarks.

The participant fee includes access to all events, full day catering and your ticket to the Gala Dinner. Note that participants cover travel and accommodation at their own cost.

Participants from all backgrounds, education and experience in international affairs are encouraged to attend, provided you are 18 to 30 years old.

The full agenda and speaker's list will be announced soon. If you have any questions, you can speak to our team at future21@youngausint.org.au
