Join a network of emerging leaders that crosses borders.

Applications to join our 2017 conference are now closed.

Each year, 30 CAUSINDY delegates take part in a four-day program, including panel discussions, social activities and networking events. CAUSINDY alumni are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, from senior public servants to prominent academics across Australia and Indonesia.

In 2017, CAUSINDY returns to Australia with a focus on tech and innovation in the bilateral relationship. Over a four day program of panels, speakers and special events, we’ll explore new opportunities for collaboration and cooperation — what will the future of the relationship look like?

Read about some of our past delegates’ experiences.

Deadline extended: applications are open until 11 June.

CAUSINDY reminded me that every young Australian with an interest in Indonesia and improving Australia’s regional relations has an important role to play in shaping new ideas and approaches to the Australia-Indonesia relationship and Australian foreign policy towards Indonesia.

CAUSINDY is such a great forum where young Australian and Indonesian meet, discuss and act to develop a better people to people relationship between the two neighbouring countries.

CAUSINDY is a rare opportunity for youth interested in the relationship between Indonesia and Australia – I can’t think of any other platform that brings together a group of people with so much knowledge, energy and enthusiasm!
